Pep Guardiola has thought of everything for the Real Madrid-Manchester City meeting. And he has worked the head of the players to convince them that what happens to them in the Premier, where Liverpool is unstoppable does not have to affect them in the Champions League or in the Bernabeú.
Therefore, one of his measures was to invite Toni Nadal, Rafa’s uncle to give them a talk at the training camp. Toni no longer travels with his nephew, who is in the hands of Carlos Moyá and gives talks about mentality, according to The Athletic magazine. He adds that Pep Guardiola has motivated his players with phrases such as “talent, not money”, convincing them that everyone thinks that the City is a team made on the heel of a book and that they have to prove otherwise.
Guardiola has already asked his people to train well, not to give interviews, not to skip the diet and not to have parties, like the one they recently starred with a bus of influencers.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City presents a height test for Zidane who never lost a Champions League tie. The French coach already defeated the English team in the semifinals of his first Champions as coach, with a tight 1-0 at the Bernabéu that resolved the goalless draw of the first leg.
Alongside a 4-2 at Bayern Munich, a 3-0 at Atletico de Madrid and a 3-1 at PSG and Liverpool, are the big wins at the Bernabéu de Zidane, the Champions League record coach who will make a call to Real Madrid to establish that special atmosphere that is created in a stadium that maintains a special idyll with the European Cup.
