Manchester City Boss To Use Johann Cruyff Tactic To Beat PSG

Johann Cruyff was mentor to Pep Guardiola and as a pupil under Cruyff, Pep is planning some of the tips he learnt to see his team through to the Champions League final as they face Paris Saint Germain.

As a player under Cruyff,Pep learned the way way to win the big prizes was to relax and enjoy the big occasions,rather than being consumed by the fear of failure.

Ahead of Wednesday's semi-final first leg at PSG ,which is arguably the biggest game in the careers of City players ,Guardiola sought to play down what is at stake.

''I learned from Johann Cruyff that when you arrive at these big stages,there's only one thing you can do and that is enjoy the game.'' said Guardiola

''Enjoy responsibility and the pressure that come along with it.Top players enjoy this situation because they take responsibility.''

''That is why the greatest win this competition is because they play it as a friendly game.''

''That is what i want to see in my team and that is what we are going to do.''

''We know how tough it is to be here,you enjoy everything in the final,there's no reason to be worried,sad or concerned about wat is going to happen-if we loose,we're going to try again next season.'' said Guardiola

To get to the final City must get past PSG who have two of the world's best players in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.And if Pep and his team go through ,the late Johann Cruyff will have played his part
