Manchester City News: What does Guardiola have to say?
Guardiola further disclosed: “The process is so difficult because it is unnatural based on who I am, but I have people close to me than help me to be calmer.” “To see things like sometimes I couldn’t see it.”
Pep Guardiola has been known to be intense, outspoken, and confrontational throughout his career, which always seems to endear him to the fanbase as his passion bleeds out in every match.
Pep has been known to take sabbaticals from football
When leaving Barcelona in 2012 he had this to say.”The reason is time. Four years wears everything out and it has worn me out. I am empty and I need to be filled again.” Pep would then take a year away from football to recharge his batteries. Before returning and taking charge of Bayern Munich in Germany.
Pep said he would have taken a year out had he not decided to stay in with Manchester City in 2020. His contract was almost up and Bayern Munich grew interested in his services once more.
Guardiola said: “I wanted to remain at the club. The choice is not just mine, it’s a mutual feeling with the club but just in case we felt we’d all had enough, I’d have taken a break.
“I said after I signed we feel like we have many things to accomplish together. “With the squad, we felt comfortable together and we always try to be consistent and continue what we have done in the previous seasons.”
Pep once more finds himself in a race for the title with long-time rivals Liverpool and their charismatic manager Jurgen Klopp. A challenge is always managing the morale of players not seeing game time.
Mr. Guardiola said “Handle the boys who aren’t selected. You need to be able to have, more or less, the group as a unit. With the ability to take care of the guys who don’t play, you’ll be more productive in your job. “If you have disturbances in the dressing room you will not succeed.”
