No Wow effect: Guardiola does not impress Thiago
Thiago is hard to impress. Manchester City and other top clubs haven’t thrilled him this season either – but an ex-team-mate did.
In an interview with ESPN TV, midfielder Thiago gave a surprising assessment of some of FC Bayern Munich’s main competitors in this year’s Champions League.
The Spaniard also finds praise for Manchester City there, but he is not particularly enthusiastic about the team of his former coach Pep Guardiola.
“I think they play wonderfully. But I don’t think “wow.” Wow, I think when I see Lionel playing messi, but not on a team.”
Thiago played together with the Argentinean at FC Barcelona before moving to Munich.
He, like Real Madrid and Manchester City,”wants to play against” – it’s possible that in the Champions League there will be matches against some of these European top clubs.
Thiago is not afraid of that:”They are footballers, like us. We need to measure ourselves against each other to find out who’s better now.”
