Pep Guardiola’s full press conference ahead of Burnley


Manchester City will face Burnley tomorrow in the 21st fixture of the Premier League.

Our coach, Pep Guardiola, held a full press conference ahead of the game and answered interesting questions.

Just to underline, Kyle Walker remains the skipper of the team, and Erling Haaland is finally back

Pep Guardiola: “Apparently Erling Haaland will be selected, yeah. The first time he’s back…”

On Kyle Walkers’ captaincy: “Absolutely, because it’s a decision for the team and not mine. I support him and his family. I don’t talk about personal things…”

On Vincent Kompany: “I have a lot of respect for Vincent Kompany, we have to be careful and prepare as well as possible…”

On Xavi: “We cannot compare the pressure in England to Spain, in my experience. It’s 1,000x tougher there. Six press conferences a week, a lot of games. The pressure you feel in Barcelona is not comparable to anywhere else…”

I said many times, I have everything a manager could dream for. I have everything. The hierarchy support me, the players support me, we have a good environment…”

Still I feel good at Man City and one day it will finish, but I’m not thinking about that right now…”

Finally, Manchester City had complete first-squad training, with Akanji and Haaland back.
