Pep Guardiola spoke to the media after the European Super Cup final, where Manchester City emerged champion in a penalty shootout after beating a Sevilla side who came out on top, tying the game after 90 minutes.
«We already knew that Sevilla would make this great game. It is a very good team. In the first half they have turned us around a lot. From right to left and vice versa. We have arrived late to the centers. We knew that we had to reach the wings, Navas and Acuña, or Ocampos, because when they put balls into the area with En-Nesyri they are unbeatable. They come with a lot of people. Aké has arrived late and they have scored a goal for us, “said Guardiola after the game.
«The worst has been the first 10 minutes of the second part, which we wanted to overcome in just 10 minutes. And in a final there is always time. And there they could have sentenced us. They have had two clear ones. Especially one with En-Nesyri and another with Ocampos, and the game would have been over,” continued the Manchester City coach.
“But then we have found the necessary rhythm. We have turned the ball around more. We have attacked better inside when Palmer and Grealish had the ball. We have found the goal and in the final half hour we have been there the whole time and we have had chances to win. On penalties the other day we lost against Arsenal and today we won,” Guardiola concluded.
