- The City boss insisted he was not focusing at all on PSG in the build-up
City hold a 2-1 lead after an impressive performance and result in Paris last week and Guardiola believes his team should not play with emotion as they look to reach the final for the first time.
‘It’s the first time most of us are here together – I know what we’re playing for, in these games you don’t need much emotions – be calm and know what you have to do,’ he said, at his pre-match press conference on Monday.
‘I don’t have to tell anyone, the players, backroom, staff, cookers, everyone knows how important it is We’ve been looking for this moment for many years. We spoke a lot yesterday and today who we are, what we have to do. We don’t speak about PSG because we play against them a week ago. We just speak about us, us and us and what we have to do.
