Pep Guardiola has asked for more Manchester City fans to come to the Etihad for Saturday’s match against Southampton. City made it four wins on the bounce on Wednesday as they returned to Champions League action in style with a 6-3 victory over RB Leipzig.
Pep Guardiola said: “I would say the last three games we played here we scored 16 goals. So I would like to come more people next game on Saturday, we need the people next Saturday. Please. We will be tired. I know the team from Ralph [Hasenhuttl, Southampton manager] is quite similar to the way they play. They are so, so dangerous with good quality and it’s a really important game for us. So I invite to all our people to come next Saturday, 3pm, to watch the game.”
While the nine-goal thriller may have been exciting for fans, it was a stressful watch for Guardiola as Leipzig repeatedly got back into the game up but he was happy with how his team always scored immediately after the Bundesliga side had pulled one back.
Pep Guardiola said: “They never give up. They have a special way to attack. They play all or nothing. Against Leipzig, you never have the feeling that it’s over. I would say it was an incredible compliment for the team. We knew it and they respond really well but after 2-1 it immediately went 3-1, after they score 3-2 we make it 4-2, we scored a few minutes after they scored and that helped us a lot.”
