HAIR GUARD – Fabio Capello, former footballer and coach, has released some statements from the studies of Sky, speaking of Guardiola’s elimination of Manchester City. Here is what was stated.
Guardiola, Capello: “Tonight nothing to say but he can’t always play without a center forward”
“They were aiming for the Champions League. It is said about Guardiola that, having greeted Barcelona, he was no longer able to win it. He was faced with a team that never gives up. But even Guardiola has to think about something different: you can’t always play without a heavy center forward. Ancelotti had said that he thought he was playing well on a defensive level, he did it tonight but he was also dangerous in attack: Vinicius was the worst in the field, eating two goals. I wouldn’t talk about Guardiola’s mea culpa: tonight I can’t tell him anything, he didn’t do strange things ”.
Fabio Capello underlined the choice, often and willingly, of Guardiola in renouncing the forward of the role to opt for the ‘false nueve’. In the current match, however, Pep Guardiola kept the only central striker available, Gabriel Jesus, on the pitch for 78 ‘. Furthermore, even in the first leg, the Brazilian striker played almost the entire match.
