Pep Guardiola: What he said

WAY WITH WORDS: Pep Guardiola

WAY WITH WORDS: Pep Guardiola

Discover more about the new Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola through comments from the man himself.

The Catalan boss is one of the game's deep thinkers, check out what he has said about the game and former players here. 

"I strive to live with passion and not to be desensitised to life. Things matter to me. You’ve got to live like that. Otherwise what’s the point?"

"I will forgive if the players cannot get it right, but not if they do not try hard."

"I have learned that when you’re in the right you should fight the world."

"I hate tiki-taka. I always will. I want nothing more to do with tiki-taka. Tiki-taka is... a made-up term. It means passing the ball for the sake of passing, with no real aim or aggression - nothing. I will not allow my brilliant players to fall for all that rubbish."

"Put on your seatbelts because we're going to have fun."

"If you train badly, you play badly. If you work like a beast in training, you play the same way."

"I sit down and watch videos. I take notes. That's when the inspiraiton comes - the moment that makes sense of my profession. The instant I know for sure that I've got it. I know how to win. It's the moment that my job becomes truly meaningful."

"I am not dealing with footballers, I am dealing with people."
