The City coach appeared before the media in the preview of the Champions League semi-final match with him PSG and was full of compliments towards the Brazilian. “I remember when I saw videos of Neymar everywhere and thought he was the king of Santos. The players were gaping. If Neymar had stayed at Barcelona, they would have won two or three more Champions. Messi, Suárez and he were the best trident in the world. He went to Paris, which doesn’t seem like a bad decision. I am an admirer of his, “Guardiola said.
These will be Manchester City’s first semi-finals since Guardiola arrived. The last ones were in 2016, lost with the Real Madrid, when the coach was still the Chilean Manuel Pellegrini.
“We are not in the elite of this competition, but we want to be there. When the owners arrived, they wanted us to come to Europe and now we are lucky to be where we are. I’m incredibly happy to travel to Paris to try and win the game and then play Crystal Palace and win one of those two games that we need to be champions.“said Guardiola.”The Premier League is the most important title, but the Champions League is the most beautiful“he added.
