Manchester City stunned the previous season finalists, Paris St Germain, on Tuesday when they defeated the Ligue 1 outfit by 2-0 Etihad Stadium. The Pep Guardiola managed side did manage to keep Neymar Jr silent throughout the games as Ruben Dias dropped a masterclass on Tuesday. The team is into their first ever Champions League finals and are waiting to confirm their opposition for the finals. Real Madrid will play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday and the game is evenly poised at 1-1.
What Pep Guardiola had to say after the win against PSG?
Pep Guardiola took the reigns of Manchester City in 2016 after his Bundesliga triumph with Bayern Munich. The gaffer let Germany for England and since his arrival at Etihad, he had changed the complexion of the competition. Pep Guardiola had made the title race in England a one horse race until Liverpool stepped up. However, he had failed in his Champions League pursuit as the team was bottling it in the knockout stages. Manchester City didn’t disappoint yesterday and comfortably registered a win. The manager said:
We beat a team that knocked out Barcelona and Bayern Munich. We struggled early on but were much better in the second half. It was an incredible, huge victory for us. What the players have done this season is incredible in the toughest year for everyone. Being so close to winning the Premier League and in the final of the Champions League is so good
The Manchester City gaffer has already added Carabao Cup to his cabinet in the ongoing season and can confirm one more Premier League title (third in five years) if they secure a win against Chelsea over the weekend. The Champions League glory is the only title that is missing in Manchester City’s trophy cabinet. Can he fill the missing piece in City’s trophy jigsaw?
