Guardiola: City fully focused on the Premier League

0 25

Pep Guardiola has insisted his and Man City’s full focus is on the Premier League this weekend, despite their looming Champions League showdown with Real Madrid.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated that his team will put their focus on this weekend Premier League match despite unsettled scores with Real Madrid in the Champions League.

City came away from the Bernabeu with a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their semi-final tie, and host the Spanish giants next week with the final in sight.

But they also face a must-win game against an Everton team buoyed by their big win over Brighton last time out.

And Guardiola is not taking the relegation-threatened Toffees lightly.

“Cause we’ve got two Champions League games, since I’ve been here it’s always been so difficult, because of the environment, they’re a front-foot team,” said the City boss.

“The end of the season is really final so our focus is on this game.

“My thought is just Everton. No more than that. We’ve spent 11 months working for the Premier League, we don’t have much time to Madrid because we play Sunday, thank you so much, but it’s a real, real priority Goodison Park.

“We play for all competitions. We have to switch. Adapt. Four games left in the PL and it’s important to us to be there, to keep what we play for in our hands. We train tomorrow and we have to prepare as well as possible.”
