Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager, said that with this “so crazy” schedule there is no time to rest.
The ‘Sky Blues’ team played this Wednesday against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League and will compete again this Sunday against West Ham United.
“With this crazy schedule there is no time to rest”Guardiola said at a press conference. “The English who played the final of the Eurocup had two or three weeks and they came back to play the Community Shield. You can’t imagine how difficult it is for players to play every three days. It’s strenuous. “
Guardiola also spoke about the formation of his team and how they are dealing with the fact that in many games they play without a pure ‘nine’.
“We can play well with a center forward too. When the striker comes down to pick up the ball, at that moment it can be said that you are playing without a striker. Against Everton, for example, Cole Palmer played as a false ‘nine’ ”.
“I like to attack with two open ends. I don’t know why, but I like it. I’ve liked it since I was a teenager, ”he added.
