Press conference RECAP
‘Blue cards doesn’t sound like a fantastic idea’
We should keep it as simple as possible for referees. It just makes it more complicated. I have no problem with testing, but doesn’t sound like a fantastic idea.
Arteta does not think football is ready for the blue card
I don’t know if we are ready for that yet.
‘I love celebrating because it brings a passion to the game’
I’ve seen managers at the Emirates away on their knees, personally I love it because it brings a passion to the game. When it’s done in a natural and unique way.
Guardiola prefers not to comment on blue cards
I have no comments on potential introduction of blue cards (since bins) – maybe I have an opinion if and when they are introduced at Man City.
Klopp wants improvement after Arsenal loss
We played a really good, top-class game v Chelsea, everyone saw the other night how good they can be if you let them but we went to Arsenal, had our parts but not more than that.
That is always the challenge for a manager. What are you doing? Ignoring or putting the [boot] in properly? It’s somewhere in between.
We weren’t even close to our standards. It all comes with the way we defended and that’s why that was the main point we talked about and what we have to do much better. That is the first step.
‘Not good news for Thiago or us’
Thiago is not cool. He showed a lot of things on LFCTV and looked outstanding, so we took him, let him play for a few minutes. It’s a muscle issue, we don’t know the extent yet but it’s not cool. Not good news for him or us.
It’s not a big, big injury, but not good at the moment.
Guardiola, Arteta and Klopp updates incoming
No love from managers for the blue card
‘I don’t know why a different colour card is going to make a difference’
I struggle to understand why this urgency suddenly to bring in new things. I don’t know if there’s that much wrong with the game.
My issue with the game right now is that VAR has changed football as an experience. I don’t know why a different colour card is going to make a difference. I don’t know about this taking things from other sports. Other sports are trying to make their games faster, we’re bringing in more clutter.
Son and Bissouma back training
Sonny did recovery on Thursday and trained today. Bissouma trained, Lo Celso trained. The only ones still out are Solomon and Sessegnon.
Sonny and Biss they trained well.
That’s all from Pochettino
Poch believes he would have got a lot of blue cards.
I don’t know the intention to add this blue card. But for sure, a lot, a lot.
No return in sight for Romeo Lavia
He is not training with the team. He is still recovering. Impossible. He is still not on the pitch.
Pochettino on Enzo Fernandez and Conor Gallagher’s midweek performances
It was only a matter of time. Great for Conor and Enzo, also. feel so happy because they deserve to feel this way and feel happy, enjoy playing football. These guys work so hard to perform.
‘My feeling is the blue card is not a good idea’
Difficult to express how I feel about the blue card. Difficult to explain. At the moment, we don’t have much information about that. That is going to create more debate. It is going to be more complicated.
At the moment, my feeling now is it is not a good idea but we will see what happens.
Pochettino wants consistency
The important thing is the 11 players are showing. Little by little, we are recovering players. The way we are training, the way the players behave, we are improving.
It’s about to win next game and get the feelings we got from Aston Villa.
