Pep Guardiola appeared at the post-match press conference after drawing 0-0 at home against Southampton. The WHERE annulled in the final stretch of the match a goal for the team of Manchester. The ‘citizens’ left two very valuable points and the Catalan coach explained the reasons for this ‘puncture’.
“We have not tied for not having a forward”
“Today we did not win, not because we did not have a center forward. We did not win because we did not make good balls reach the forwards. Our elaboration in the game was not good. We did not manage to do things well with our defense and Ferandinho. The five boys who had to take the ball to the other players were not well, “he said.
Today we did not win, but not because we did not have a center forward
The fatigue of the staff
“I would have loved to have more time to recover and be better but today we do not have that freshness in mind. I would not say the same about our legs, because we have four or five new players but sometimes this happens. They had seven days to prepare, we had 10 minutes yesterday. We were there but we couldn’t be more decisive in the last third. We don’t get to shoot much.We have to create more and from behind, he commented.
The Champions takes its toll
“The Premier League is 38 games and in theory we all fight against everyone on equal terms, but this is not totally true for the teams that play in the Champions League,” he concluded.
