Pep Offers Strange Response To Messi Question

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola offered a curious response to a question he was asked about Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the start of this season's UEFA Champions League.

Unique Clause In Messi's PSG Contract Revealed?

The Citizens begin their European campaign against RB Leipzig on Wednesday, with PSG and Club Brugge being the other two teams drawn alongside them in Group A.

In a recent press conference, Guardiola was quizzed on the dangers of thinking too far ahead – particularly to City's second UCL group match against his former Barcelona player Messi – but insisted he has not spent a second doing so.

"The most difficult game we have in the group will be the first against Leipzig," he said, according to Manchester Evening News.

"This is the most important game of the group stage.

"I have not thought one second about PSG. The teams we are going to face are so, so difficult."

The Premier League champions will play against Mauricio Pochettino's side in Paris on 28 September.
