“We don’t play to beat United, we play for ourselves,” Guardiola said. “In the second half, we were there. United are always a transition team; they have been for 10, 20, 30 years.”

“In the first half, we struggled a bit, but the second half was better. In general, it was a good performance for a final,” he added. “Many things can happen—they scored two goals, and we could not score more.”
