Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has revealed he is yet to speak to his squad after they were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid on Wednesday.
According to Guardiola, there were no words he could say to the players to console them after the defeat in Spain.
City were two goals ahead going into the 90th minute of the second leg of their semi-final but conceded twice in two minutes to see their advantage wiped out.
A Karim Benzema penalty in extra time sent the LaLiga champions through to the final against Liverpool.
The Premier League champions must pick themselves up for this weekend’s clash against Newcastle.
There are four matches left and the club cannot afford any slip-ups if they are to hold off Liverpool.
Guardiola has now said he had not said a word to his players since the Real Madrid game but would remind them how good they have been all season when they train on Saturday.
“We didn’t speak. No words can help for what all of us feel. It is just a question of time, sleep as well as possible and think of the next target,” he said.
“Tomorrow will be the first day we are together and we are going to talk about who we are as a team, what we have done in the semi-final. How good we have been not just in these two games but all season and tried to do it over the last weeks.
“It is probably one of the moments since I am manager I am most proud to be in this club and organisation until the last day we are here we give everything together.”
