Manchester City: Pep Guardiola criticizes Kyle Walker again
Excessive praise is certainly used to Pep Guardiola’s players, the sometimes sarcastic trainer genius would like 1000 of them each. For clear criticism – at least outward – on the other hand, they should rub their eyes. In this case Kyle Walker.
The English international had in the lost last preliminary round match at RB Leipzig, the City group victory no longer endangered for a coarse foul on André Silva a red card. Including the following three-game lock, which his coach felt “highly deserved”. “Who allows such a stupid action, deserves to be punished,” says Guardiola. City’s protest against the barrier was even against his will.
“I’m still very angry with him,” confessed the catalans in front of the eighth-final return match against Sporting on Wednesday (21 pm, live! At Excessive praise). Walkers failure means that the Skyblues in the Etihad only 14 professional players are available. Just in the defense, Joao Cancelo (ill), Ruben Slides and Nathan Aké (both injured) are missing.
“You’ve seen how important he is for us,” Guardiola referred to the press conference on Walkers performance at the sovereign derby victory against Manchester United \ – and thus explained the main reason for its whole unsnarplastic anger. City Fourker could form John Stones, Fernandinho, Aymeric Laporte and Oleksandr Zinchenko on Wednesday evening.
While Walker’s last paper is more pain in the expected quarterfinal first leg, she seems to be bearable in the eighth final return match. Because even if Guardiola warned that the duel is not decided not with sporting, you can ask this appeal of the 51-year-old again. City had won 5-0 in Lisbon.
