“It’s a bit scary how the world is,” Guardiola said. “It’s going a bit crazy.
“What’s happening in Syria… hopefully the president of the United States [Trump], the presidents of Russia [Putin] and China [Xi Jinping], can intervene and find a solution, because if not we don’t know where we’ll end up.
“We have to keep living without fear, but these things can happen.
“I hope Marc has a fantastic recovery. In terms of what happened, it was scary and it was serious, but he lived to tell the tale.
“But we’re in a world where we don’t know where we’ll end up, that’s the truth. I don’t know where we’re heading.”
