Manchester City beat Bayern Munich 1-0 last night (7/23/22) at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. In our first article from the press box at this match, we covered all the lightning delays and the goal-scoring of Man of the Match Erling Haaland.
In this article, we have full audio of both manager press conferences, as well as some quotes. We’ll have more full quotations later in future articles, but for now here are some major takeaways from the post-match press conferences of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann.
