Manchester City have lost their chance to win four trophies this season. Until Saturday, Guardiola’s players have participated in the English Championship, the FA Cup, the English League Cup and the UEFA Champions League. However, in the FA Cup semi-finals, they lost to Chelsea 0:1 and the Londoners advanced to the final. The team from Manchester did not perform well in this game and may lose to a higher opponent in this game. In addition, she is likely to lose Kevin De Bruyne, who left the field early in the second half. The decisive goal of the game was Hakim Ziyech’s goal in the 55th minute.
The Manchester City coach on Saturday afternoon did nothing to please him, it was obvious to him after the game. As Pep Guardiola showed at the post-match press conference, he was obviously frustrated. At the suggestion of a reporter, the Spaniard was angry that his team had given up the game against Chelsea in order to retain their strength.
“When the same team has entered the League Cup four times in a row, don’t say we don’t care about the FA Cup.” Don’t say that because we lost. These guys fight to win every game. It’s just that we lost-Guardiola said. He added: “If you don’t care, you won’t have a chance to reach the FA Cup semi-finals or League Cup finals for four consecutive years.”
The trainer also mentioned the composition problem in his speech. The theory of abandoning the game supports making such a decision, such as placing Phil Foden and Ilkay Gundogan on the bench, and having Zach Stefan ( Zack Steffen) scored, and the latter made a goal for Chelsea. -We respect the FA Cup. We come to Wembley to win the championship. Do you think Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus or Ferran Torres is not worth playing? Guardiola said, if this is the case.
However, on Sunday, April 25, Manchester City will be able to comfort themselves after losing to Chelsea and winning another trophy. The deputy champion of the England national team will face Tottenham in the League Cup final.
