We cannot change absolutely everything in one season.
I proved myself in Barcelona, and after I proved myself in Germany, I wanted to prove myself in England.
In Barcelona, Bayern Munich, in Spain and Germany we were able to do it. But people say, 'You only did it because you were in Barcelona and Bayern Munich. You will not be able to do it in England.' So, let's do it. We are going to try.
At Barcelona, I had the best players ever, and they helped me to be a successful manager.
Barcelona are special in the way they play. They're a machine.
For the last decade, the last 50 years, Barcelona dominate football matches. I love the way they play.
For my experience, my family. I will always be grateful for the people who brought me here.
I am grateful to be here, and I will always be grateful for the opportunity Manchester City gave me.
You know what happens in all the big companies and business in the world. If something doesn't work, you have to find a solution.
The players are coming to try every game, every weekend, so that the Manchester City people can be proud, and we will see what is our level to achieve our battles.
People say you must be pragmatic, more clinical. More pragmatic than me? I'm sorry.
People say, 'Pep won in Barca, but it was boring,' or, 'Pep won in Bayern, but it was boring.' I understand that. But games won, goals scored, goals conceded, titles... sorry, guys, it was good!
The most difficult thing in football is to score a goal.
We have to cut out some of our mistakes, but the main thing in English football is controlling the second ball. Without that, you cannot survive.
People usually think that it is the coach who has to raise the spirits of his players; that it is the coach who has to convince his footballers; that it is his job to take the lead all the time. But that's not always the case.
There are footballers who are very good playing on the outside but don't know what to do inside. Then there are players who are very good inside but don't have the physique, the legs, to go outside.
I am here to change anything. I'm here to adapt. The critieria between a yellow and red card. What is a foul and what is not.
I'm sorry, but until my last day as a coach, I will try to play from my goalkeeper.
You hear all these people saying, 'Oh, Pep, what a good manager he is.' Forget about it. Cruyff was the best, by far.
This was how Johan Cruyff worked. He was demanding a lot, but when you got there, and you were in his team, he was an incredible protector. He would push and push you, and then he would protect you. He was a master at handling players. He knew when you needed to be pushed or protected.
