Guardiola: It Was Life and Death

share on:


According to Pep Guardiola, Bayern Munich’s progress in the Champions League to the semifinals, was a matter of “life and death”.

The Germans overturned a 3-1 deficit, a deficit they suffered at Portugal by winning 6-1 at home in the Allianz Area, winning on an aggregate of 7-4.

“I know how very important it was,” the 44-year-old ex-Barcelona boss told ZDF Television. “It is about winning just like at Barcelona.”

He added: “It’s easy to love my players now. I am the coach of extraordinary players. I didn’t expect such a first half.

“We can still play better. We lost the ball here and there and we can improve on that. We had a few problems in the second half. They had only a few chances in the second half but you should never relax in the Champions League.”

It didn’t really come as a surprise to me when Bayern won, I guess doing the treble is looking possible.
