01, January 12th, the quarter-finals of the League Cup ended early this morning, Manchester City 0
-2 lost to Southampton and missed the semi-finals.
After the game, Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola accepted media interviews.
“The better team won the game, they played better, we had a bad night, we played badly.”
“We didn’t react well to the bad start, we didn’t play well, we didn’t win the game, I’m not talking about the championship, but good performance is the basic.”
“If I win something it’s because I want it. I didn’t get it today and Southampton deserved to go to the semi-finals.”
“It was a bad night, I know the players, today they played very differently, you can compare it to Chelsea three days ago. It was a big difference today, so I don’t have much to say.
Southampton are just playing better and you have to bless them, accept the result and improve.”
“I’ve always stressed that when you play four events, you have to use every player. Every player has to be ready, players who are not playing can still help the team, everyone has to be involved. Who
Know if Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne will make a difference? We try to do our best and the team has to rotate.”
“After Chelsea the comment was how good the decision was. I understand how it works, we had to do it today, it just didn’t get the result we wanted.
Regarding the next away game against Manchester United, Guardiola said: “I think it is a different game, but if it is still this performance, we will not get a chance. I know what the players have to do to play better, so
We will try to do that.”
