In his press conference ahead of Manchester City’s clash with Chelsea this weekend, Guardiola responded to Solari and Real Madrid when a reporter informed him about Solari's response and Madrid fans' anger to his earlier comments.
Guardiola said, "Thank you so much, but I will be nice for the Madrid supporters, who are upset with me, who are saying the best team in Europe is Real Madrid. Because in the last three years they won [the Champions League] and I think they are the best team by far in Europe in the last decade, and the best team is Real Madrid."

"But Real Madrid is not the best team of the decade when you count leagues and cups and the other ones, because Juventus, Barcelona and Bayern Munich won six or seven times and they [Madrid] won two. I am pretty sure that Solari now understands my answer better. I am pretty sure they are happy now with me.”
