GOAL issues next Sunday a wide interview to Pep Guardiola, under the title '90 minutes with Pep', of which already knows the first extract. In him, the one of Sampedor analyses some subjects like the fact of have not been able to win the Champions League since it abandoned the FC Barcelona, neither with the Bayern Munich neither now with the Manchester City.

The Catalan technician no martiriza thus, and knows perfectly the complicated that it is to win the prestigious European title, especially if his teams centre primordialmente in showing his authority in the national championships. And it is that of leagues does not walk short Guardiola, having harvested this last season 2018-19 at all less than four titles with the Manchester City, the 'poker' of England.

"That fracasa because it does not win the Champions? As fracasa, what do him. That it wanted to arrive to the final and that had healthy envy of the final Liverpool-Tottenham? What had given for being here", recognises Guardiola in an extract of the interview.

On his philosophy of game, recognises that before it was more dogmatic but that, with the step of the time, has learnt that it is necessary to go updating along the seasons. "At the beginning it was more fundamentalist, but to the cape of a month or two darse that there are some principles that are very intocables, but that it is a question to readjust continuously. The big mistake is to be very dogmatic".

In this sense, the possession of the balloon and the command of the game are two basic concepts in the game of his teams, but this does not mean that they are the only that it is necessary to take into account. In fact, Guardiola remembers a party that the Manchester City lost in spite of having it controlled from beginning to end. "Have the record in a Manchester City-Basilea of the Champions of passes hit and lost 1-2. It is an absurd debate. All the world knows when the possession has really a sense".
