What Guardiola told Man City after Spurs Champions League loss

first_imgPEP GUARDIOLA found the right words to pick his players off the floor after their Champions League heartbreak against Spurs.Now, the Manchester City chief might be thinking how he can lift them again after Sunday’s shock loss to Wolves.2 Pep Guardiola had to pick himself up off the floor after Manchester City were knocked out of the Champions League last seasonCredit: Rex Features2 The Spaniard was left reeling after two VAR decisions went against them in their quarter-final clash with SpursCredit: Rex FeaturesHe certainly managed to do it in April, as his rallying call helped City push on to seal an unprecedented domestic Treble.Guardiola’s stars were reeling after two VAR decisions went against them in a pulsating quarter-final second leg against Spurs — losing on away goals.The Etihad boss knew he had just over 60 hours to pick up his players in time to face Mauricio Pochettino’s side again, this time for a crunch fixture in the title race. It was a game City simply had to win to maintain their slender lead over trophy rivals Liverpool.Now, the words the former Barcelona coach used to inspire his crestfallen men can be revealed.A new book called Pep’s City: The Making of a Superteam reveals how Guardiola gathered his devastated players together the day after their Euro exit.He told them: “I’m proud of you. I know you feel like s**t and you think it’s not fair.“Since when is football fair? I’m not being fair when I decide not to pick you.“And I p*** you off when I put you on the bench, so when you go out on to the pitch, you show me that I’m wrong, right?“Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to do now. Eat this f*****g s**t that we have to eat.“Because we did everything to eliminate Spurs and they f*****g beat us, we’re out on our f*****g a*****.“Now we just have to fight for everything we have left, stand up and fight for what we can still win.“We can win two more trophies and lads, let’s go for them! I know you’re going to do it because you’re the best.”We did everything to eliminate Spurs and they f*****g beat us, we’re out on our f*****g a*****Pep GuardiolaHis words had the desired effect as City beat Tottenham thanks to Phil Foden’s early goal — and went on to win their last four matches to clinch a second successive Premier League title.And six days later they thumped Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup final at Wembley to complete a domestic Treble.Yet in the hours after Euro agony against Spurs — when an injury-time Raheem Sterling winner had been chalked off by VAR — it was Pep who needed picking up off the floor.So the way he was able to dust himself down and raise the spirits of his squad speaks volumes about his motivational qualities.City chief executive Ferran Soriano went to Guardiola’s office along with chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and director of football Txiki Begiristain after the game.And it was the measured views of Khaldoon that helped the manager to look forward.Soriano recalled: “Pep took it worst — and that’s quite normal in the circumstances. Khaldoon asked us to put the night in context, that we could still win four trophies that same season.“We’ve built an environment where nobody is going to lose their head, none of our fundamentals will be put at risk just because the team loses a match. The disappointment hurts but it can last a day and then we have to get on with business.”Most Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticBut the fact it meant missing out on a semi-final with Ajax made the bitter pill even harder to swallow.Ex-Barca player Begiristain said: “My emotions were different. I felt Pep didn’t deserve to be out and we really wanted to be playing in the Johan Cruyff Arena.“We owed it to Johan, our professor, to take City there.”Pep’s City: The Making of a Superteam, by Lu Martin and Pol Ballus, is published in paperback and ebook on October 24Pep Guardiola vows to quit Man City if ‘things don’t go to plan’ with champions eight points behind Liverpoollast_img read more

To come up against Australia like that was tough, but we said 10 minutes is a long time and all we needed to do was to get back the ball to have a chance to win.”In a pulsating final Sam Myers begun proceedings before captain Ed Jenkins and Cameron Clark took their lead to 15-0 at half-time, but three missed conversions proved costly for the Australians who finished runners-up for a second successive tournament. Fiji’s win gives them a five point lead at the top of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series standings ahead of South Africa (86) and New Zealand (82) at the halfway stage of the 2015-16 series with Australia in fourth.Hosts USA finished fourth in Las Vegas after losing to South Africa in the third place play-off and sit fifth in the overall standings. ALL BLACKS FINISH FIFTH Fresh from two Cup wins on the trot, New Zealand had to settle for the Plate this time round after beating Japan 27-7.All Blacks Sevens stalwart DJ Forbes got Sir Gordon Tietjens’ side off to a flyer with an early try, which was further added to by Kurt Baker who weaved his way through the Japanese defence to dot down. Lewis Ormond added a third try for New Zealand to make it 15-0 at half time, and his side were soon 22-0 up after Forbes bagged his second try of the game. Kameli Soejima scored Japan’s only try of the half, but after New Zealand’s Beaudein Waaka powered over in the left hand corner it was game over for Japan. SILVERWARE FOR WALES IN BOWLWales proved too strong for France in the Bowl final as they ran in four tries to win 28-14 in Nevada.Captain Luke Trehane sped away from the French defence to get the first points on the board for Wales and then set up the second score for Tom Isaacs to make it 0-14.France came back into the game immediately through Sofiane Guitone, to make it 7-14, but it was a short lived comeback as Ethan Davies scooted off the back of a scrum to increase the Welsh lead.Davies then turned provider for Luke Morgan, and with just over a minute left there was suddenly a 21 point gap putting the game out of reach. A late consolation try from Guitoune made it 14-28 at the final whistle.SAMOA SHIELD IN VEGASSamoa walked away with the Shield after beating Canada 24-12.Despite going behind early on thanks to a quick try from Canada’s Mike Fuailefau’s, Samoa found their rhythm with an immediate response from superstar Samoa Toloa. It was all square at the break, 12-12, and the match was in the balance before Toloa again stepped on the gas to grab Samoa a seven point advantage.Alefosio Tapili finished off the game with a late try to gift the Pacific islanders some silverware at the HSBC Las Vegas Sevens.last_img read more

Vinicius time

first_imgEverything changed since then for him, that before he had only had 4 titles in 29 games of the first team and from that point he enjoyed 14 in 15 games, until he was injured in the second round of Champions against Ajax. With Madrid under minimum results and enthusiasm, the boy’s smile made his way through the promotion of a Solari that corrected Lopetegui’s excessive zeal with him. The goal, your goalIn the 2019-20 Vinicius accumulates 853 minutes, which puts him in 16th place in the leading role. “He is 19 years old and you have to go easy on him. He has to be ambitious. We have 25 players and, when some are not on the lists, it is because there are many important players. All these players could have more minutes. “ Zidane justified himself on Saturday, shortly before leaving him at home for a visit to Valladolid. The eighth Cups bring a new opportunity for Vinicius (19 years old). The KO tournament is an ideal catwalk for the Brazilian, who are not missing the minutes in the League and Champions, and that already the previous season he used the competition as a trampoline. In his first course in Spain, he squeezed the first three games as a claim: with two goals and four assists, he uncovered as the player who had participated in many more in the Cup. Zizou put him in the rotations over the weekend because against Unionistas he had given him the full match. Today (9:00 p.m., Four and DAZN) he is expected again at eleven, in a new showcase to win over the boss and finish convincing the fans, excited about her gallops and dribbling, and worried about her blur. A goal in La Romareda would give packaging to his candidacy for the derby. 25last_img read more

The Le Leeds phenomenon ’amazes and Adidas enters the game

first_imgLeeds United is living a very special year in its history. Those in Yorkshire march Championship leaders with 2 points difference over West Brom and point to the Premier League. Further, they became centenarians at the end of 2019 and this year’s shirt, always special, is being one of the most sold in England.The Peacocks, trained by Marcelo Bielsa, are a historical elite of English football, where they try to embark on an already long return trip that, it seems, is nearing its end. Inside the field, everything works and outside, it seems that too. The Leeds shirt is among the best selling in England above those of several Premier sets such as the Everton, the Wolves or one of the best classified, the Leicester. With more than 100,000 shirts sold, Leeds foresees a good deal for its 20/21 elastic. The white club ends contract with Kappa and as reported by English media, Adidas sounds hard to be the new supplier. The return to the Premier would significantly increase the benefits for a future contract although there is still a lot of season and the points difference is not too big. Therefore, according to The Athletic, there were conversations with Adidas but the decision is not made. Thus, if you get the Leeds shirt, the three stripes brand will dress several of England’s best clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal and Leicester as well as Wolverhampton or Sheffield United.last_img read more

Messi, three months without marking away from Camp Nou

first_imgIn part, Messi greatly misses the presence of a killer. Specifically, from his friend Luis Suárez. The Uruguayan was the footballer who cleaned the landscape of centrals and the one that allowed him to play more liberated and with more options ahead of the ball. He is the one who misses his absence the most and the numbers certify it.Messi left crestfallen from the Bernabéu. He feels that he should be collaborating more with the team away from home. The defeats against Granada, Valencia, Levante and Madrid, or the same draws in Anoeta or against Espanyol have the team in a compromised situation. And he wants to improve his numbers. Messi is less Messi this season away from Camp Nou. The Argentine does not score away from home in the League since December 1 of last year, just the day before the Golden Ball gala in which he received his sixth award. It was at Wanda, where he crowned a great game with a spectacular goal against Atlético (0-1).Since then, Messi only scored a goal in the Spanish Super Cup played in Arabia, but that game is considered played in neutral field, so that the streak without scoring away from home extends already in the last three months. In fact, of the 23 goals he has scored this season, only four have been away from home. One in Eibar, one in the house of the Levant, that of the Wanda and another in the Sinobo Stadium in Prague. The last month is being tough for Messi. In the last six days of the League he could only mark the day he scored four goals against Eibar. He did not score against Valencia, Levante, Betis, Getafe and Real Madrid. Nor did he do it in Naples and where he missed his goal the most was in San Mamés. With 0-0, Arthur put a gold ball that the Argentine could not embocar since he met Unai Simón.last_img read more
