Manchester City coach Guardiola talked about football in an interview with brand sponsors. He said: "I will draw inspiration from other sports. Football is not always the pursuit of victory."
Guardiola said in the interview: "You can always learn from other sports. It's great to know this."
"For example, in golf, mental methods are so important. When you talk to great athletes, you will understand their inner strength. We can learn a lot from other sports."
"Football players are so smart, they are very intuitive. When you are a fake, they will realize. You can make mistakes and make wrong decisions, but you can't be untrue. You need to convince them that you want Way of playing. This is the only way I know."
"We are a team that has made incredible progress over the past decade. We want to compete with Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham. We were there and we did it."
"Football seems to always be about winning, but it’s not true. Even if you don’t win, you can be happy. Have bad times, have good times, and play happily. Then always try to do your best. Is there a win situation? Okay, let's try again. We will give everything to win."
