“Rudiger, a remarkable performance! Haaland presents his English debut!”

During a recent press conference, Pep Guardiola shared his thoughts on the upcoming game against Everton and the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid. The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw, leaving the outcome of the second leg at the Ethiad stadium wide open. Guardiola praised Antonio Rudiger for his efforts in stopping Haaland from scoring, but reminded everyone that Haaland is only 22 years old and it was his first time playing in Europe’s top competition. Guardiola believes that given more experience, Haaland will become accustomed to the big fixtures. However, the coach also admitted that the team could have played better in other areas to ease the pressure on Haaland. When asked about the possibility of winning the Champions League and the Premier League, Guardiola stressed that both titles are important for different reasons. While the Premier League title is significant, the Champions League is a special achievement that requires an incredible effort over many months. Guardiola concluded by stating that his team must be prepared to try their best to win both titles.
