Pep Guardiola ‘very pleased’ with Manchester City’s draw at RB Leipzig – video | Soccer

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said he was “satisfied” with his side’s draw at RB Leipzig in the Champions League last-16 first leg despite dominating for large periods of the game. “We don’t have the team to compete with them in transitions. They are better than us, they are faster and faster. In these situations, German teams are better than us. We had to have a lot of control,” he said. Guardiola summoned his team to a post-match meeting on the pitch and later clarified that he was congratulating his players, not berating them. “They had their heads down,” he said. “(I asked them) why are you with your heads down? That was very good.”
