Pep on team fatigue

Pep Guardiola ahead of the international break: “I pray – pray that [the players] come back fit. They have to go to their national teams; they have to go, enjoy and play for their country, but I hope they can come back fit like they are now.”

Pep Gaurdiola: “Sergio, David Silva, Aymeric Laporte and a few others will have a week’s rest. They will have a training programme to do a little bit each day and then a week of normal training ahead of the Fulham game.”

Pep on the busy April schedule: “With the fixtures we have in April we need everybody – it’s crazy. Everybody is going to play and Kevin, Ferna, John, Benjamin… they are all going to be back soon, and we need them. Even if some play 10 or 15 minutes here and there…”

Pep Guardiola: “We need everybody because we have got to this stage where we are still in with a chance of winning three more trophies because of everybody – not just 11 players, but everyone. Everybody has contributed, and it has been massive.”

Pep Gaurdiola: “To have this spirit, desire, this intensity and overcome difficult situations – I told the players that this is going to happen quite often between now and the end of the season where the mentality will be the difference.”
