Pep Guardiola fears that it will be difficult for his team to hold matches soon as City are not ready to play every 3rd or 4th day. The Spanish specialist is not thinking about the match with Real Madrid in the Champions League yet.
Manchester City boss Josep Guardiola has spoken at a news conference after a three-month hiatus caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The English Premier League will be resumed on June 17, and Manchester City, which are 25 points behind Liverpool, will host Arsenal in the match of the 28th round.
“We are ready to play one game. But on every third or fourth day, the game will be very difficult. We are not ready for that. We will have to rotate and use all the players. Here I will say that our players are in good physical condition,” said the head coach of Manchester.
Josep Guardiola has also spoken about Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, who was his assistant at City before joining the London club.
“I look forward to meeting Mikel Arteta – one of the most enjoyable people I’ve ever met. We know each other well, and he knows everything about me. Mikel has played a key role in our recent achievements. He helped us become who we are,” said the Spanish specialist.
Manchester City have to play a return match against Real Madrid in the ⅛-final of the Champions League. Guardiola’s team won 2: 1, and it is still unknown when the return match will take place at “Etihad.”
“Frankly speaking, I don’t think about Real Madrid and the Champions League at all now. I only think about Arsenal now,” said Pep.
