I don’t know how to stop Messi, Neymar, Mbappe – Guardiola
Pep Guardiola Manager of Manchester City has admitted that on Tuesday 28 September he doesn’t know how to stop Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar as PSG faces Manchester City in the Champions League.
Speaking in advance of the match, Guardiola said Mauricio Pochettino’s starred front three could not be contained.
On Monday, he said to a press conference: “I’m unaware. I don’t know how much quality we should honestly do to stop them.
“They’re so good. This amount of talent altogether, to control it is so difficult.”
Messi is yet to score for PSG following his move in the summer, but the City manager insisted even one of the best players in the world needs time to adapt to a new team in a new league.
“They need time but normally it’s not given to us,” Guardiola said. “The quality is there of course. For many years they [PSG] had exceptional players and top managers. In the French league, cups and Europe they are there.

“We know exactly how difficult it is. But at the same time, we are trying to go again, knowing how good they are individually and collectively.
“I think this kind of player [Messi] speaks for itself. Messi speaks for itself; you don’t have to describe him. What he’s done is more than exceptional.”
