Pep Guardiola addressed the media on Friday ahead of Manchester City’s clash with Leeds United.
Here is what he had to say.
On squad news
“Yes, Kyle Walker is out. [Out for the rest of the season?] I don’t know right now. I’m not worried at all, he’s injured unfortunately for all of us and him especially. I must focus on the rest of the players.
“John Stones? For tomorrow he’s out and we’ll see for Wednesday.”
On his City future
“I don’t know. Leeds is the focus, an important thing. Congratulations to Jürgen [Klopp] and Liverpool. [His extension is] good for the Premier League … My future is Leeds, our future is Leeds.
“Honestly, I’m so concerned about the last three weeks of the season, I don’t have time [to hold talks with the club].
On playing after Liverpool
“We have been in this position many times in the past and now in the present. It’s nothing new. If we play before or later, we must win the game. Nothing has changed.”
On FWA Player of the Year result
“Congratulations to Mohamed Salah [on winning FWA Footballer of the Year]. Absolutely not [disappointed Kevin De Bruyne did not win]… I was not in contention, I play good. He won it already so… Congratulations, Liverpool.”
