The Manchester City boss says everyone imitates the winner, but football isn’t just “copy and paste”.
Josep Guardiola a In an interview with Sky Sports They analyzed the situation in football, and how much preparations had changed in recent years, and in this regard, he said that he faces a more difficult task today when he became Barcelona coach.
“You can’t imagine how hard work is going on behind the scenes, so it’s more difficult to win games now than when I started 13 or 14 years ago.” He began.
However, his results do not indicate this, but he has a lot to say that both Jose Mourinho and Rafael Benitez both recently lost their jobs in the Premier League, and both have had huge successes on the table.
He analyzed the situation, which changes from year to year, and evolves, and then shows that there are teams that he really likes to watch, because they know what they want, and they’ve been able to make it happen.
However, he is reluctant to admit that Premier League football is also moving in the more mainstream direction with his successes, as the number of long passes has been steadily declining in recent years. Teams prefer patient building over straightforward solutions, while fewer and fewer people try to do so from the outside.
“It’s all up to the manager. If that manager likes a certain style of play, then his team will play that way too. If there are a lot of these coaches who like a game that is better built when the footballers are close together and pass quickly, then those The teams will play this way.”
He stressed that this is why he admires coaches who come to see what they expect from the team on the pitch, and then if their performance declines, they will stick to what they believe in, because they are who they will be. successful.
The future of football was also discussed, with he said he hoped technology, knowledge and quality would remain at the fore, and that fitness would not go beyond everything, the amount that goes to the gym.
