Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola “I don’t do motivational speeches. I don’t read books about motivation and that kind of stuff. I say what I feel about the team and when we are going to play such and such a game, speeches about the game. I think it’s the same for all coaches, sometimes the boys are calmer, sometimes more aggressive, sometimes when I see that the team is a bit sleepy, we have to bring them back. You know, against Arsenal, I didn’t say a word, so do you think we need to motivate ourselves before playing against Arsenal for the Premier League? They know it perfectly.
They know exactly what they have to do, they don’t need talk in this kind of match, for example against Madrid, they know exactly what they are playing, the Champions League semi-final, you don’t need words, you know, to let them know how happy and important and privileged they are to be there. »
