“It was with Guardiola that I changed my way of seeing things, I didn’t play much also because of an injury. It’s true that it’s not easy to have a good relationship with him.

“He is never relaxed, he thinks about football all the time. I think at home, in the evening, he puts his wife on the couch as if she were a player on the pitch!”

This weekend, Guardiola and his players will try to bounce back from their Champions League defeat to PSG in midweek when they face Liverpool in the Premier League.
