Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has admitted that he will not be able to stop Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar as PSG face Manchester City in the Champions League today, September 28.
Speaking ahead of the match, Guardiola said it will be more than difficult to wage Mauricio Pochettino‘s star prepared front three.
He told a press conference on Monday: “I don’t know. This amount of invasion to be experienced, I am still pondering what we should do to prevent them, frankly.
“They’re so good. This amount of talent altogether, to control it is so difficult.”
Messi hasn’t scored PSG following his move in the summer, but the City manager insisted even one of the best players in the world needs time to adapt to a new team in a new league.
“They need time but normally it’s not given to us,” Guardiola said. “The quality is there of course. For many years they [PSG] had exceptional players and top managers. In the French league, cups and Europe they are there.
“We know exactly how difficult it is. But at the same time, we are trying to go again, knowing how good they are individually and collectively.
“I think this kind of player [Messi] speaks for itself. Messi speaks for itself; you don’t have to describe him. What he’s done is more than exceptional.”
