Arsene Wenger: Pep Guardiola visited me as he targeted Arsenal move

Arsene Wenger credits Arsenal for taking the game to a ‘nervous’ Ostersunds side and navigating the weather conditions in their comprehensive victory. Arsenal took advantage of some woeful defensive errors to brush aside Ostersunds and put one foot into the Europa League round of 16. Arsene Wenger has said Pep Guardiola visited his house during his time as a player because he wanted to move to Arsenal. Wenger and Guardiola face each other in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday as the Gunners take on Manchester City at Wembley. The Arsenal manager told beIN SPORTS that Guardiola could have played for the Londoners after his time as a Barcelona midfielder had come to an end. “I talked to him a few times, and once he came to my house when he was a player because he wanted to pla...

After an apparent confrontation between Sergio Aguero and a Wigan fan following Man City’s FA Cup defeat, the FC crew discuss the incident and their concerns about fans storming the pitch.

Manchester City’s complacency costs them in FA Cup defeat at Wigan

Nearly five years on from their FA Cup triumph, Wigan knocked out Manchester City yet again, this time ending the Premier League giants’ hopes of a quadruple. Pep Guardiola says he can’t fault his players intentions on the pitch after 10-man Manchester City were knocked out of the FA Cup by League One side Wigan. Manchester City lost a third consecutive FA Cup tie with Wigan, and it was the third time that the Latics deserved their win over the Premier League giants, too. There had to be an element of luck about the 1-0 scoreline, as the home side capitalised on a mistake from Kyle Walker to finish their only real chance of the match, but the visitors barely tested Christian Walton at the other end. Positives Pep Guardiola will have to chalk that match up to experience because ...

Pep Guardiola plays down tunnel row, accepts Fabian Delph red card

Pep Guardiola says he can’t fault his players intentions on the pitch after 10-man Manchester City were knocked out of the FA Cup by League One side Wigan. WIGAN — Pep Guardiola played down his row with Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook and congratulated the League One side after their shock FA Cup victory in the fifth round. Will Grigg’s 79th-minute strike stunned City for the third straight meeting in the FA Cup after the 2013 final and 2014 quarterfinals — and ended City’s hopes of a clean sweep of four trophies this season. The game changed when Fabian Delph was controversially sent off after referee Anthony Taylor looked like he was going to give him a yellow card. Guardiola said after the game that he agreed with the red card, even though at the time of the ...

Pep Guardiola acknowledges he ‘wasn’t good enough’ to play for Wigan

ESPN FC’s Craig Burley reacts to the FA Cup quarterfinal draw and predicts how Man United, Chelsea, Tottenham and Man City will fare. MANCHESTER — Pep Guardiola could have once played for FA Cup opponents Wigan Athletic but he wasn’t good enough, according to the Manchester City manager. The Catalan takes City to the DW Stadium to face the League One side in the fifth round, 15 years after he nearly signed for Wigan. Guardiola almost joined City as a player after a trial period under Stuart Pearce, but he joked that both clubs made the right decision to reject him. “I wasn’t good enough. That is the truth,” he said at a news conference. “I was old, really old for a footballer to come here. I tried to come here to play in English football but I was ...
