“If you play every three days, you don’t have time to see things clearly,” Guardiola said. “It’s always the following – then travel, then organize the team, and whatever.
‘This is the hardest thing when you play a lot of games, as I always have, but the difference here is lockdown – our lives have changed completely.
‘That makes this season so special for everyone. Winning one title already, close to another and then playing a final against PSG on Tuesday. It was exceptional. ‘
City are also chasing Champions League glory after winning the Carabao Cup last weekend
City will have fought 61 games this season as they progress to the Champions League final, averaging one game every four days.
Guardiola managed more at Barcelona – 64 in 2012, 62 in 2011 – but the shortened nature of this campaign has made it his most intense campaign to date. The Catalan has also not been able to properly analyze the performance.
“It’s home, game, home, traveling,” he added. “We don’t have time to pause and see what happened. In this industry everything is easier when you win. ‘
