I agree with Jose Mourinho on this - Pep G.

PEP GUARDIOLA says he is in agreement with Jose Mourinho following the Manchester United's manager criticism of international friendlies.

 

Mourinho lost Chris Smalling and Phil Jones to 'long-term' injuries during the break.

And the United boss expressed his unhappiness and questioned the need for mid-season friendlies. 

 

But while Guardiola understands the need for matches, the Manchester City manager feels the games pose a risk for club.

"The federations want the players to play as much as possible ahead of the world cup and of course we want all the players to go there," he said. 

"We want them to go there and come back safe, and play less minutes as possible.

I am a little bit agree [with Mourinho]. Now we play for many things. All the clubs are here for many minutes and the people are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, of the Europa league so, for the qualifications, and it’s too risky to play a friendly game. I agree. If we could avoid it it would be better, but the schedule is the schedule.

It’s too many games, it’s crazy how many games there are in all the leagues, that’s why it happens.

Always the national team deserves to play games but when we have 20 games in a thousand million competitions, and then after the Confederations Cup and after the games, it looks a little ridiculous. I am sorry.

Pep Guardiola
