Pep Guardiola inadvertently suggests Man City aren't a "big club"

Rita Gibson | 17 May, 2017, 12:57

Victory will all but assure they retain their spot in Europe's elite competition for a seventh consecutive season, but Guardiola expects no favours from a Baggies side who made Chelsea work hard for a title-clinching 1-0 win at The Hawthorns last Friday.

They bossed the game from start to finish with West Brom looking disinterested.

In with the crowdFollowing Saturday's announcement he will be leaving this summer, City fans made clear in Zabaleta's last home game as a Blues player their appreciation for his service, with banners paying tribute to the Argentinian defender being displayed in the stands and his name ringing around the ground in a range of chants.

Speaking at a press conference earlier on Monday, he said he would have been sacked at a "big club" like Barcelona or Bayern Munich. If not, they don't give you a second chance.

"It was so tough to play that half-an-hour".

"Tony Pulis' teams don't play thinking it doesn't matter".

When asked for his favourite moments in a City shirt, Zabaleta added: "The first time when we beat Manchester United at Wembley in the semi-final of the FA Cup in 2011, then the first Premier League we won with (Sergio) Aguero's goal at the end was probably the special one. At the clubs I worked at before I am not here, but here we have a second chance and we will try to do it better than this season".

It was their code which was leaked and their response to the leak highlighted a huge lapse in responsibility. Doing so would not have altered this outcome, and WannaCry would be spreading as quickly as it is now.

"I've been so lucky to play alongside great players.it was an absolute privilege".

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho has admitted that Pep Guardiola's first campaign at the club "has been tough", but is confident that the Catalan is the right man to turn things around. "I wish all the best for this football club".

And Guardiola believes his team would have been closer to taking home silverware this season if he could have paired the Brazilian forward with Sergio Aguero.

"Gabriel was unbelievable but today I think that the key player was Sergio", he said. "I am not staying here because I am Pep or what I have done a long time ago".

"Here they gave me a second chance and we will try to do it".

"The two quick goals really set them up". Jose will improve that team again next year so they'll be a stronger team and be a real powerhouse again next year.

City announced over the weekend that Zabaleta would end a nine-year spell in Manchester when his contract expires at the end of this season and Tuesday's final home match of the campaign was soundtracked by chants paying tribute to the Argentina worldwide. "That makes it even more hard".
