Grealish may feel unstoppable but Guardiola knows danger of hubris | Pep Guardiola

“I don’t like that, no,” said Pep Guardiola with a slightly edgy laugh. The Manchester City manager was trying to process, decompress and, yes, enjoy the Champions League semi‑final, second-leg dismantling of Real Madrid on Wednesday night when it was put to him that Jack Grealish had just said the team felt unstoppable.

In fairness to Grealish, he had called it after the first leg in Madrid, using the same word to describe the mood in the City dressing room before the Etihad return. To Guardiola, it was probably the only time the winger put so much as a syllable out of place.
