he said at his pre-match press conference
“I'm pretty sure we have to suffer to win the final. It's nice to say enjoy it but sometimes it's not possible. You have to be resilient and adjust.
“I know exactly the way we want to play, with whom we are going to play and I am not going to bother them much.
“It is an incredible privilege to be here. I never expected at the start of my career to play one final of the Champions League. Now we are here. We are lucky.
“I know exactly what I am going to tell them. I don't want to bother them too much.
“The guys who are anxious or nervous I am going to tell them it is normal and the guys who are more relaxed it is normal as well.
“Everyone will handle it their own way.”
The Citizens have won the Premier League already, and they would want nothing more than a UCL trophy to add to their list of glories, and so their UCL clash against Chelsea is going to be a very important one.
