Ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City, Pep Guardiola has warned Thomas Tuchel that his Manchester City players are ready for Chelsea.
Guardiola said: “They are ready, I know how good they are, all of them, I’m not going to change for one or two training sessions, like they are going to convince me. I know most of them for many years, I have an idea, there’s still the starting XI, still not done. Not yet.”
On reaching the final, the 50-year-old added: “I never thought in the beginning of the season, that this was the season to get to the final.
“Never approach this competition like this, since I started at Barcelona, we are quite similar teams what we were in the past and when we were out.
“The margins are small, when it fell down on us a few years ago, not much changed.
“We are quite satisfied to get into the final but we know if you don’t have a huge desire to win it, a huge desire to know what you have to do, then it will not be possible to win the game and win the champions league.”
