Pep Guardiola He made several interesting reflections after winning a new title with the Club World Cup.
“I told the team: the reason we are here is not Istanbul, it is not Inter Milan. The reason we are here is Monaco, Liverpool, Tottenham, Lyon… It is the final against Chelsea that we lost and the last minutes against Madrid“, he said after winning the Club World Cup with his City.
And he added: “It hurt at that moment, but now it doesn’t hurt. That helped us and helped us beat Inter Milan. It is a process. The big clubs are used to that, but for us it was new, feeling that we can do it, believing that we can win everywhere, that we can win“.
Looking at the future
The Catalan recalled that, in sport, you have to win. “This is a business in which you get credit when you win. If you don’t win, you are nothing, zero; and what you have done goes to the past. No matter how much you win, others want you to fail. More than ever. I felt like when we won the ‘sextete’ in Barcelona“he explained.
