Manchester, United Kingdom) – baby Guardiola against Diego Pablo Simeone. In the Champions League quarter-finals, there are two very different ways of understanding football on the field vis-à-vis each other. “There is a misunderstanding about Simeone’s way of playing. It’s more offensive than people realize – The City coach said yesterday – He doesn’t want to take any chances in the setting but they are very good in the last 30 metres. They are really competitive. It depends on the movement of the game and they know how to play with the right timing“. Simeone’s answer didn’t wait:It’s not me against Pep, the players will take the field, not us. Guardiola knows how to make stars play like wings. Any coach would want that kind of behavior from his champions.”
