Manchester City Boss Pep Guardiola Mocks Liverpool's Pitch Sabotage Talk

13 rising stars who could light up the Championship in 2019

New Real Madrid signing Brahim Diaz has discussed his happiness at joining the club from Manchester City, describing it as a step in the right direction.

Ilkay Gundogan wasn't one of them but he set up four goals. "Sometimes I'm really unfair with many, many players and when I made a decision to play him against Southampton he did really well and that's why he played against Liverpool".

The Spain under-21 global was part of Guardiola's first team squad, despite not playing any minutes in the Premier League or Champions League, but the City boss has no plans to sign a replacement.

"They don't compete really and that's why sometimes it's hard to put them [in the team]... that's why they train with us, sometimes they play in the cup, sometimes go on loan, to see how they develop in that position. The players, their family, their agent; they decide what is best for them".

Asked if he was disappointed to lose Diaz, Guardiola said: "No".

Burton are putting the facilities into practice in preparation for the visit of Manchester City in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup on January 23.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola wants Vincent Kompany to extend his contract, which expires at the end of the season.

'With four competitions, everyone is involved and we play games every three or four days, we need everybody.

"The only one who chose to stay was Phil and that's all".

De Bruyne was a key player in the side that won the title last term, but injuries have restricted him to six league appearances resulting in City being nine points worse off than they were at the same stage last season.

Foden is sad to see his friend Brahim leave the club, but wishes him the best in Madrid, where the Spanish winger is expected to be given first-team opportunities in the second half of the season.

It was claimed they allowed the grass to grow much longer than the 23 millimetres the manager usually demands. I never speak with the groundsman. "I trust the groundsman, I never made a phone call to say do damage to our opponents". When this happens, you do the best for your opponents.
