Josep Guardiola the pre-match press conference

The head coach of Bayern Munich expressed his opinion regarding the upcoming match 1/2 finals of the Champions League

“We are pleased to participate in the semifinals and we know that all the teams here are strong. Atlético is no exception. They can be compared with Barcelona and real Madrid. When they play against the European giants, it may well leave them out of work. Simeone has managed to achieve much at the helm of atlético. We are waiting for a great match, complete and spectacular football performance. We will do everything in our power to reach the final.

Atletico – the team versatile. I haven’t played against her five years. As experts say, and as I see myself, this team defends very well, but, of course, Arsenal Atletico is not so limited. They wisely follow their strategy, Koke takes the great standards, they have well-built defenses, they try not to give the opponents any space and are great on the counterattack.

In football you have to adapt to the opponent, and we will try to make it so that to achieve maximum results. For three years we have three times reached the semi-finals. I know people say that without victory in the Champions League my work in Bavaria cannot be considered as successful. In any case, I’m very happy to have received such a useful experience in Germany. I think I became more relaxed, felt better as a coach and as a person“, – quotes the Spanish expert the official site of UEFA.
