Pep Guardiola team talk which helped Man City beat Liverpool FC to Premier League title revealed
After cruising to the title last year, it was much closer when May rolled around this year as Liverpool finished just one point behind the Blues.
Man City looked unstoppable towards the back end of the campaign as they won 14 consecutive games to win the title.
Liverpool also went unbeaten during that period and considering the pressure, fans and pundits alike were impressed with how the Blues retained their composure.
Now it has been revealed how Guardiola kept his players so focused on the matter at hand each week thanks to a club documentary.
One of Guardiola‘s team talks after the 2-0 win over Manchester United in the latter stages of the season has come to light and it proves how the Spaniard kept his players on their toes throughout the entire campaign.
“We have one problem guys, we have one problem,” Guardiola explained.
“We make an incredible victory, now people are going to talk about how beautiful you are, how handsome you are, how special you are, but you have to go to Burnley – it’s like a dentists, you know it’s going to hurt at the dentists at Burnley, you know that.
“Tomorrow, good regeneration, take care of yourself guys, because it was in our hands before the derby and now it’s still in our hands.
“I’m not saying after what you have done here that we cannot lose the next games – of course we can lose, unexpected.
“Even Liverpool can drop points against Newcastle or the last game against Wolves so it’s in our hands.
“Be calm guys, in the media, in everything. Work harder than ever, we cannot lose it guys. This Sunday now, to have a long week to prepare – two finals.
“Now we have it here we cannot drop it guys, we cannot drop it.”
City would go on to edge out Burnley and Leicester City (both 1-0) before defeating Brighton 4-1 on the final day of the season to claim the Premier League title once again.
