Pep Guardiola explained in his statements to the British network “BTSport”: “I have a group of players who share the same commitment to me, I see it in training, I feel this when we have daily meetings.”
He added, “It is a pleasure to be a technical director of this team. They always want to succeed and will do everything in their power to achieve this.”
Regarding Aguero’s absence: “Sergio suffers from foot disorders, and he did not train with us, after suffering within 3 or 4 days, while Laporte suffers from problems in the thigh muscles, and the doctors said that he could not play.”
On Nathan Aki: “He was injured for a long time and trained for 3 weeks. What makes me happy as a coach is to give each player minutes. Nathan is loved by his teammates, and he is happy that he can play now.”
He concluded: “I decided to start with Stirling because he is an important player for us. Everything we have achieved in the past years is impossible without him.”
