Pep Guardiola press conference

Pep Guardiola was back for his first press conference since catching Covid, the Manchester City manager spoke about how the club are handling the Covid outbreak. Some key quotes from the presser: 

"We played Aston Villa with 11 first team players. So the last six or seven games there are four or five players from the academy on the bench, we are in the same situation as all other clubs."

"Injuries may be less because our medical department are exceptional. But in terms of Covid, it's struck all clubs, it's around the world, it's not because we are smarter or wiser or we do the protocols better than the other ones." 

On Tuchel: "He is one of the few managers I learn constantly from, to become a better manager myself. He makes world football better. When you find a manager who always wants to be positive in the way they play, it's good."
