Guardiola finally reacts to Messi’s Champions League goal against Man City
Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City manager, has hailed Lionel Messi’s “fantastic” goal against his side in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Messi produced a trademark finish past Ederson in the second half, following a one-two with Kylian Mbappe.
The 34-year-old’s goal sealed a 2-0 victory for PSG in their second group game.
It was also his first since his free transfer from Barcelona this summer.
Guardiola said: “The (Messi) goal was fantastic. We know it’s impossible to control Leo during the whole 90 minutes but he was not much in touch with the ball.
“We know quite well when he can run and get close to the box he is unstoppable. We knew it already, we spoke about that, we cannot control them for 90 minutes, these huge talents.
“The only options I know is to defend deep for 90 minutes deep and pray or to take the ball and try to play your game.”
