Guardiola: We have to adapt to intense schedule

Pep Guardiola believes there is no excuse for his Manchester City side not to be ready to take on Wolves on Saturday.

City have had just two full days to recover from Wednesday night’s Champions League meeting with Borussia Dortmund before tomorrow’s lunch time trip to Molineux.

However, the boss accepts that this intense schedule is essential if his side are to compete for trophies on all fronts.


“We have less time but it is what it is,” he said.

“The big teams have to adapt. The circumstances is what it is. We are no exception, it happened in the past.

“What I have seen is different from other seasons, when they sat back. They still have counter attack actions but now have added a different approach.

“I respect a lot what Wolves have done in the past but also now what they are trying to do. I like many, many things.”
