Guardiola calls for Man City cool heads to see off PSG

Pep Guardiola on Monday called on his Manchester City players to control their emotions if they are to reach a first-ever Champions League final as they take a 2-1 lead into the second leg of their semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain.

City came from behind with a stunning second-half performance in the French capital last week to take a giant step towards a goal they have been chasing ever since Sheikh Mansour’s takeover in 2008 transformed the club’s fortunes.

Guardiola has won the Champions League twice as a coach when in charge of Barcelona, but has failed to do so in the past 10 years as he has suffered numerous agonising exits from Europe’s premier club competition as Barca, Bayern Munich and City boss.

City moved to the brink of sealing a third Premier League title in four years at the weekend and Guardiola urged his side to maintain the same focus they have all season to see off PSG on Tuesday.

“The second-leg of semifinal always the toughest game, more than the final. We have to control our emotions to do exactly what we have to do,” said Guardiola at his pre-match press conference.
