MANCHESTER (VG) (Manchester City-Real Madrid 4-0, 5-1 on aggregate) They may have humiliated Real Madrid and reached the Champions League final, but Pep Guardiola will hear no talk of his unstoppable car.
To be honest, we feel unstoppable. We feel no one can beat us, when you look at what we did with Bayern Munich (3-0 win) and RB Leipzig (7-0) here,” Jack Grealish told BT Sport after the match.
Manchester City beat Real Madrid 4-0 in the second leg and with 5-1 on aggregate secured a place in the final against Inter in Istanbul on 10 June.
When coach Pep Guardiola was asked about Grealish’s message in the post-match press conference, Guardiola was blunt.
– I do not like it. All teams can be suspended, and they can change completely from one day to the next. It’s good for players to feel this way, but every game is different, says Guardiola after one of his great evenings as manager.
Coach didn’t just scold Grealish:
Two goals from Bernardo Silva, an own goal from Eder Militao and an additional goal from Julián Alvarez ensured the humiliation.
In the post-match press conference, Guardiola was happy and relaxed. He declared that it was the best performance his team had ever produced, given the circumstances and the opposition.
There was still one thing he couldn’t stand.
The level of this team is unbelievable. And they are very humble, regardless of the match or the opponent. I hate arrogance in sports. Today, the Spaniard says, they were paid for their humility.
However, she must be allowed to trust. BT Sports expert and former Manchester United goalkeeper Rio Ferdinand revealed on air that Guardiola sent him a message before the match.
According to Ferdinand, the message said “It’s me two, we’re going to win today”.
Guardiola himself left the field and shouted, “What did you say?!” , a moment that many filmed and shared on social media.
Next weekend, Manchester City could secure a potential first of three titles of the season. They secure the league title if they beat Chelsea.
