Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has claimed the 3-0 victory over Bayern Munich on Tuesday night took a heavy emotional toll on him.
“It was not comfortable. Emotionally I’m destroyed. I have 10 more years today. It was such a demanding game,” Guardiola said.
“Now I have to relax, a day off for the guys, and prepare for Leicester. I know exactly what you have to do there [in the second leg against Bayern]. If you don’t perform really well they are able to score one, two, three. I know that. The players know that. It’s an incredible result, but we have to play our game with a huge, huge personality.
“We don’t need to tell them [his players] the warnings. Three years there and I know in Europe this team especially, you have to have a really good performance. To knock out these teams you have to have two good games, not just one.”
