Pep Guardiola is & # 39; curious & # 39; to what extent the supporters of Manchester City support his team when they win the Champions League honor.
The city driver emphasized the need for desire of his players and fans for the crunch quarter-final second leg with Tottenham.
And he called on Wednesday for a raw atmosphere at the Etihad Stadium to stimulate the Premier League champions.
Pep Guardiola says he & # 39; curious & # 39; is to see how his Manchester City players are supported
The city takes Tottenham in the crucial second leg of their quarter final in the Champions League
& # 39; If they don't help us tomorrow night … do it for the boys, they are so proud. We need them in our bad moments, we cannot continue at this stage. I am very curious about what our fans will be like.
& # 39; I want the crowd to look like it was against Liverpool. I want to see if our fans really want to go to a semi-final. I want to see it tomorrow. & # 39;
The supporters of the city have a rocky relationship with the Champions League and the UEFA anthem routinely captivates in the run-up to the kick-off.
& # 39; Tomorrow is about desire & # 39 ;, Guardiola added. & # 39; (The atmosphere in January) Liverpool game would be enough for me … a little better.
Guardiola insists that on Wednesday evening everyone shows the desire and the will to win
The city has had to deal with criticism of empty seats in the past, but there will be few on Wednesday
& # 39; I have often arrived in the quarter-finals and semi-finals, every time the support is incredible and we need it.
& # 39; I want to see that they want to go to the semi-finals, not only the players, but also the fans. I want to see that. & # 39;
Guardiola also warned his stars that the coming days, the doubleheader with Spurs, will determine their season – and suggested that the Premier League schedule has hardly helped their goal.
& # 39; I like challenges of this kind, & # 39; he added. & # 39; Tottenham had six days of rest and we had two for the first leg. I don't understand why the Premier League set the game at 12.30 p.m. I do not understand.
The city is ready for the game after a 3-1 win in the competition at Crystal Palace on Sunday
& # 39; When I was in Barcelona, I often listened to Sir Alex Ferguson, (Arsene) Wenger and (Jose Mourinho) about that. The big clubs never complain, it's what it is.
& # 39; If we don't win, we'll come out. Two finals for us, I've had that feeling for a while. Every time you arrive in the final phase, we were already champions in this period last year, but we have an incredible opponent.
& # 39; Normally we would be champion with 86 points. Both teams deserve to be champions. This week and the weeks at the end of the season we will prepare for the next season. & # 39;
