Pep Guardiola has revealed he is more calm going into Saturday’s Champions League final than he was two years ago.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola believes it will require a lot of patience to break Inter Milan defensive side in the Champions League.

City will have the chance to lift their first European Cup when they face Inter Milan – two years after their final defeat against Chelsea.


And speaking in his pre-match press conference, Guardiola was asked whether his side are more relaxed this time around having already won the Premier League and FA Cup.

Guardiola said: “I’m more than calm, I’m so grateful for what the players have done but finals are so different.

“What we do in the next days is understand the game we have to play. It will be a game of a lot of difficulties. It’s not easy to attack the defensive system they use.

“We have to have a lot of rhythm and patience. The right tempo is the most important thing in these type of games, more the game you go through anxious becomes a problem.

“They are used to dominating the games in Italy and they have a lot of good patterns so we have to defend really well. It’s a final against a top team and we have to do it. We are confident, optimistic but I can not deny the qualities of the opponent.”
