- Guardiola: ‘If it all rests on his shoulders we won’t win’
Pep Guardiola has warned his Manchester City players that they cannot rely on Erling Haaland alone to make the difference as the club start their latest quest for Champions League glory at Sevilla on Tuesday night.
“If it all rests on his shoulders, if we rely only on him, we won’t win,” the manager warned his squad on the eve of another go at the competition that still eludes City. “I know, I know,” Guardiola said, head nodding, eyes rolling as the inevitable question came about the failure to land Europe’s most coveted trophy.
