Pep Guardiola admired his players during his post-match press conference.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is happy after Manchester City’s victory against strong PSG. The Premier League manager says he is delighted to be in the Champions League Round of 16.
City made a good comeback after seeing PSG’s first goal from Kylian Mbappe. Man City were clinically good in the second half. Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus managed to pull off three points against Ligue 1 giants.
Man City have won Group A with a match to spare, and PSG are also through to the knockout phase.
Pep Guardiola said during his post-match press conference, “PSG, what a team, what players, what could I say?
“The performance was quite similar to Paris a month ago. Today we created more chances in the first half. We pressed really well in Paris and we adjusted because we learnt what we do.
“They decided not to play with Di Maria, but they are so dangerous. They have good players so you can lose a game like this. The quality they have…we did so well.
“We were aggressive without the ball. We defended well. We did it. We played really well. In football the results are random. Nobody knows what will happen.
“What gives you consistency is how you perform and the way we are performing is really good. The people enjoy watching and hopefully we can sustain this for as long as possible.
“The players come back from injury and hopefully help us do it. They have a lot of quality, we tried to defend away from our goal because they can do anything.
“Except for the five minutes after our goal when they counter-attacked but could not finish because Ruben defended really well, so I say congratulations to everyone at our Club. We are into last 16 and will try our best in February to go to quarter-finals.”
Man City will get back to their Premier League campaign now and 4th placed West Ham will be touring to Etihad on Sunday. Man City are three points behind Chelsea after 12 matches.
