‘An absolute winner’, ‘Positive until the end’ – Man City fans react to Pep Guardiola’s incredible half time speech in stunning come back vs Aston Villa


Manchester City produced a comeback for the ages to seal the 2021-22 Premier League title – and now Footage has emerged showing Pep Guardiola’s half time team talk before the stunning come back.

Starting one point ahead of Liverpool with a better goal difference by six, City came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 against Aston Villa as former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard failed to do his boyhood club the favour they so desired.

As the half time whistle sounded, City found themselves 1-0 down. In the dressing room, Guardiola gave the perfect speech to galvanise his players.

Footage of that team talk has now emerged courtesy of the latest episode of City’s ‘Together: Champions Again’ documentary and there’s no doubt that Guardiola absolutely nailed the perfect motivational speech.

“We’re going to go for it. Okay, guys?” Guardiola insisted as he stood before his dejected-looking players.

“It’s impossible to think about the consequences if we don’t win. It’s normal. It’s normal. But you have to be positive until the end.

“We need one goal. Then we will have the momentum and we will do it. I know you feel the pressure in the danger. It’s normal.

“We would not be here if we hadn’t been the best. You would not be. I know we are going to win it, but you have to handle in here [the mind] in a positive way.

“Find the quality, guys! You have enough. Okay? Allez,” a pumped-up Guardiola concluded, before clapping his hands and heading back towards pitchside.

This post gathered a number of replies from a wide range of Man City supporters, who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on the matter.
