Squad rotation key to quadruple hopes, says Guardiola

Pep Guardiola has said squad rotation will be key if his troops Manchester City are to have any chance of accomplishing the quadruple this season.

No club in England has ever won the Premier League, both domestic cups and Europe’s elite club competition in the same season but Man City are on track to do just that.

Guardiola’s men are at the summit of the log with a lead of 14 points after 31 matches and they host Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the Uefa Champions League quarterfinals on Tuesday.

Man City are also due to face Chelsea in the FA Cup semifinals and play Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup final later this month.

“I rotate because it is not possible to play every day. They are human beings, not machines,” said Guardiola.

“To win all competitions in this year without spectators, when we start later and finish earlier, you cannot be there where we are if you don’t rotate.

“We don’t have even one midweek off. No player can do that and be ready mentally every game. So, I rotate them.

“I trust my players so much. They don’t trust me but I trust them with their quality,” he concluded.

Man City host Leeds United in the league on Saturday after facing Dortmund.
