Grateful Guardiola unsure over long-term future at Manchester City

Manchester City boss claims they will watch Man United play Liverpool Pep Guardiola focused solely on Stoke as Manchester City close in on title

"I prefer to play at weekends, when all the teams play", said Guardiola.

Guardiola's much-publicised stance over the situation in Catalonia has become a major issue in his homeland where, according to reports in Spain, the City manager's private plane was searched at Barcelona's El Prat airport last month by police looking for exiled Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont.

The Catalonia native displayed the ribbon during several Premier League, EFL Cup and FA Cup matches as a way of pressing for the release of independence activists Jordi Sanchez and Jordi Cuixart and politicians Joaquim Forn and Oriol Junqueras, who have spent four months in pre-trial detention, reports Efe.

"I don't like to play on Monday because the weekend, everybody is involved, and when the weekend is over, they are like "the weekend is over", there are no more games, but we have to play".

One player who may not be returning at Stoke is Benjamin Mendy, who is approaching full fitness and able to take part in training after a knee injury but is to be gradually reintroduced by City's manager. The draw for the Quarter Final of the Champions League will be drawn at UEFA HQ on Friday 16th, but for now the most important game, and focus of blue minds, will be on Stoke City.

The striker, City's leading scorer this season with 30 goals, has indicated he will be out for around two weeks after suffering the injury on Saturday.

"Many of the English players prefer to stay here because there's a chance of playing in the Premier League", he added. We are so happy because maybe he can help us for 20 minutes, 25 minutes.

"I think in all the leagues in Europe, at the end everybody plays to win titles, to be in the Champions League, to be in the Europa League or to stay in the league and avoid relegation".

"A lot of foreign young players also come to play in England and when they go to play for their national team, it makes them stronger". Probably not. Everybody and their dog thought Juve would win.

Pep Guardiola is hoping to welcome Fernandinho, Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph back into action after the trio were hit by injury.

"If we try to play football the same way they do then we will be beaten - that's the reality".
