“Thank you for playing on Saturday”, Pep Guardiola full of irony to tackle the Premier League

After winning the European Super Cup on Wednesday against Sevilla FC on penalties (1-1, 5-4 pens), Pep Guardiola tackled the organization of the Premier League at a press conference, which holds the programming on Saturday of the match between Manchester City and Newcastle, which gives little rest time for Cityzens.

”From Greece, thank you very much to the Premier League for letting us play on Saturday…and not Sunday or Monday.”Pep Guardiola’s tone is ironic, but the sting is very real. The Manchester City manager, after winning the European Super Cup on Wednesday, railed against the Premier League schedule, which gives players just three days before they play their next league game on Saturday against Newcastle.

A busy recovery

From August 6, the date of the Community Shield loss to Arsenal, to August 19, the Cityzens will therefore have played four games in 13 days. Sevilla FC, City’s opponent in the European Super Cup, does not play again until Monday against Alavès in La Liga.

After starting successfully in the Premier League against Burnley (3-0), Manchester City will try to chain a second victory in a row on Saturday against Newcastle, who are coming off a card against Aston Villa (5-1).
