Pep on Spurs game

Pep Guardiola: “I never know before the game how fresh our legs and minds are. The mind controls the legs. All eight teams left in are contenders to win. This leg, a tough opponent we know quite well.”

Pep Guardiola: “This team has shown they are incredibly focused every three days, that’s why we are here. We stayed in London to avoid airports, waking up earlier, one hour more, on bus or plane. We’ve been out, had lunch together, and it gives us more time to speak.”

Pep Guardiola: “I will give my message to the players, always against Spurs they will always play in that [aggressive] way I can’t expect differently. How we handle that if they do it we must try to do it more. Maybe they will play high press and aggressive, we will prepare.”

Pep Guardiola: “Being in the position we are, I don’t know what’s going to happen but this team showed they have incredible focus playing every three games. We would have stayed in the bus and plane the last two days if we had not stayed [in London].”

Pep on Spurs’ development: “I remember that game when we lost [in 16/17], then I understood how tough the Premier League was, at that time we were leading the table. We are a better team than we were then, it’s a long time ago. I don’t think a lot about the past.”
