UCL: Guardiola claims Man City learnt valuable lesson in victory over PSG

Guardiola insists Bruce needs to ignore joy killers

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, was delighted with his team’s comeback win over PSG.

Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring for the visitors, but Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva hit back to give City a 2-1 victory.

And Guardiola believes City learnt a ‘good lesson’ from their fightback.

Speaking to BT Sport, Guardiola said: “It was a good game. The danger is always when they have the ball in the final third is terrible. But again we did a good performance like in the first game. Unfortunately, in the first half the chances we had, we could not convert. After their goal, we suffer a knock-out of five or 10 minutes but after that, yeah. We thank our people for coming out and supporting us. It was a lovely night for us.

“Always, we try. They fought a lot because they demand a lot of effort defensively because of the quality they have with short passes. We are already qualified but today we did a good game against a top side. We are last five or six years, reaching the last 16, so we are top of the group and I am more than satisfied.

“We attack good in the spaces and the quality from Bernardo. When you talk about the right technique it is that. The right tempo and doing it in the right moment to give your team-mate the best chance to score the goal.

“It is a good lesson. When you are losing you have to continue. We knew a draw was a good result for us, but we won.

“Always I believe with their forwards, the further they are from our goal the safer we are. The closer they are, they find the spaces. Look at the action of Neymar when he missed the shot.

They found that from nothing. They are too good up front. We have to defend as a team. I don’t know the stats, but I thought we were brilliant today.”
