I told the players that you have to put the pressure on yourself. To get real recognition, you have to win the European stage.”
In the end, Guardiola said, “We can rest for two days. Then we will train three or four times to prepare for the Inter Milan match. Then we leave. The FA Cup final before that was really cool. It was really important to us.” he emphasized.
