PEP’S WORLD CUP VIEWS
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was on a Monday Night Football special last night and was asked about the World Cup, specifically whether John Stones would be ready for it, having not played much for City, and who he thinks will win…
On Stones: “I think he is really prepared. In the first part of the season he was a key player for us with Nicolas Otamendi, they were outstanding. After he got injured and had a few more problems to come back, but Huddersfield and Southampton both performances were good.”
On the contenders: “They are always the same teams. Spain it was always illusion but after they passed the quarter-finals and they got a generation with Xavi, Iniesta, [Sergio] Ramos, [Gerard] Pique, [Sergio] Busquets, [Iker] Casillas, these guys…I think Spain is one of the contenders with Germany, Brazil, if [Lionel] Messi arrives good then Argentina.
“Hopefully England for the players I have and for the country who receive me and my family. I am curious about this competition.”
