It has been a terrific season for Manchester City so far and Pep Guardiola’s side are suddenly the team with the highest chances to win the Premier League title – and they are not without chances even in the famous Champions League.
But despite being enormously successful this season so far, Pep Guardiola is sure that his Manchester City will have worse moments – and it’s just a matter of time until they’ll come. The Spaniard is sure that it’s almost impossible to go through the whole season without any failure.
The former coach of Bayern Munich and Barcelona is, of course, happy with the start of the season, as he said, according to ESPN: “I cannot deny we are a little bit better, last year we had four points, now we have nine, and in the league last season we had 18 points now we have 25. Of course, we are a little bit better, but [last year] we were unbeatable and we were playing quite quite good and people were saying very nice comments about us, and after that, we saw what happened. So I’m not a big fan of predicting what is going to happen.”
But he is sure that his side won’t be this successful through the rest of the season: “We are going to have bad moments. The people maybe don’t expect that, or they say good things to make us confused, but we are going to have a bad, bad moment.”
The Spaniard also talked about his relationship with the manager of his upcoming opponent, Tony Pulis: “I have huge respect for him. He’s a friend of mine, so I have a lot of respect for Tony, what he has done. It’s always really complicated to go to West Brom and win. Tomorrow will be a big battle again, as it was against Burnley. As I have said many times, I respect the way they do things. What they do, they do really well.”
