Pep Guardiola: Man City boss criticised by club's supporters over Fulham game


Afterwards, the coach called for more fans to show up to games and supporters are unhappy, with Kevin Parker, the general secretary of the club's official fans' group, responding by speaking to the Daily Mail.

In spite of the convincing result, the Blues' boss was still full of praise for his opponents: "After one or two minutes I knew it was going to be a tough, tough game the way they started with 5-2-1-2 [formation] and how they are incredibly aggressive up front".

Guardiola made his plea after a crowd of 39,223, some way short of the 55,000 capacity, watched Sunday's routine 4-0 win over 10-man Fulham in the FA Cup fourth round.

Asked about this Solskjær referred to how United did not defend the Cup as holders in 2000 because Sir Alex Ferguson chose to field his team in the Fifa Club World Championship.

However, some responded by quickly pointing to a recent heavy load of fixtures, and the cost of attending every game, and their stance has prompted Guardiola to reflect on his comments.

"I have said to the boys already, two weeks ago, that we will have a winter break, so it means we will not be there - it will be the kids who play that game because they can not deal with us like nobody cares about it".
