Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola said on Friday that the current squad is one of his most thirsty squads, after scoring 21 consecutive wins in all competitions ahead of the summit match against Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.
The Spanish coach spent seasons full of titles with Barcelona and Bayern Munich before moving to City in the 2016-2017 season and led him to win the Premier League title twice, in addition to the League Cup three times and the FA Cup.
Under Guardiola’s leadership, City is on its way to adding more titles, leading the league by 14 points from second-placed neighbors United, and the Spanish coach faced questions about the comparisons between his current team and his previous teams.
“I trained incredibly effective teams throughout my career and I am fortunate to lead Barcelona and Bayern and what we have achieved here in four years and continue to win and this group of players has something special,” he told reporters.
“This thing stems from within them, so they strive to win, cooperate with their colleagues and provide the best possible performance, and this is great now because we win and the smell of winning is beautiful,” he added.
Guardiola stressed that it is not possible to back down with 11 games remaining in the league.
“Football is about what we do today and our career is great so far, but it is not possible to crown titles in March.”
