Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has warned his players that they must treat today’s Champions League game against Barcelona like a cup final and refused to answer question on future of Yaya Toure.
Having lost their Group C game at the Nou Camp 4-0 last week, City have some ground to make up after also drawing their other away game, 3-3 at Celtic.
Guardiola knows that his team really must take something from their rematch with his former club at the Etihad Stadium tonight.
Speaking at his lunchtime press conference yesterday, Guardiola said: ‘Every manager has his plan to try and beat Barcelona.
‘They know us and we know them. “Football is unpredictable. But for us this is a cup final and we have to play in that way.’
Guardiola, meanwhile, refused to take questions on the future of out-of-favour Yaya Toure.
He said: ‘I will not answer. I will not answer.’
