Pep Guardiola to stick with Man City's guns-blazing style

  • Guardian, Tuesday, March 14, 2017 5:22 PM
Manchester City, with a 5-3 first-leg lead going into Wednesday's UCL clash with Monaco, will go on the attack, says Pep Guardiola. "Take the ball and attack is the only way I know to beat this type of team," said Guardiola. "I invite people to come here and see a good game. I am pretty sure of that. When one team scores 123 goals, it means they can score in many, many, many ways, so the best way for us is to score goals.”

Monaco's 123 goals is the highest in Europe’s top five leagues.

"Can we win the Champions League in that attacking way? Yes, sure,” Guardiola said. “I could not assure anyone, even when we won the Champions League with Barcelona, or arrived in the semifinals with Bayern Munich [when he coached them]. But in that way, it is going to happen. It is the only way I know, and it is going to be another fantastic game. Monaco are a team created to attack and our team is created to attack, or at least to score goals so in that way it will be a great game.”
