Manchester City's defeat to Basel was a warning — Pep Guardiola

Manchester City's defeat to Basel was a warning — Pep Guardiola

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has rubbished speculation suggesting he could sign a contract extension in the coming weeks. It was his first goal in his last 14 appearances.

Admittedly, all the league leaders in the big five, with the exception of Napoli, have 60%-plus, but their nearest challenger among the leading quintet of leagues is Paris St. Germain, a full 3.5 percentage points behind them. "Like everybody knows, hopefully sooner or later I can stop wearing it (the ribbon)".

When is the Champions League quarter-final draw?

Their visit to relegation-threated Stoke on Monday, though, has left Guardiola looking at the calendar warily. However, Elyounoussi turned in an excellent performance, contributing with a goal and an assist for his side.

"Just to pass to pass for itself is nothing, so the second half was really, really poor".

Guardiola has argued wearing the symbol is not political but has accepted it is in breach of the FA's kit and advertising regulations.

Juventus showing their doggedness fought back with both Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala inspiring a dramatic turnaround after the break. We'll do everything we can to try to win.

The Swiss team pulled up its socks for the second leg of the tie and came into Manchester with all guns blazing. It's just from my experience, and I don't like it. Not to be outdone, Pep Guardiola - resplendent in aforementioned yellow ribbon - saw his side taken for more a ride than they had been offered in Switzerland. We have to pass the ball to attack, not pass to pass. Within that time frame, if they manage to get the ball and force their opposition to make a mistake, well and good. It is understood he ignored two warnings from the FA before being charged after last month's FA Cup loss at Wigan. Basel, who made just a quarter of the passes their opponents did, still managed a slender victory over the English champions-elect.

He said: "We have to be really strong". He endorses a brand of football that is the very spirit of the game - dynamic, beautiful, skillful and quick.

"We have a certain pride and showed that against a team that wins here so often".

Reports in the Spanish media have suggested that a new deal is in the offing for the 47-year-old on the back of his Wembley triumph, with his agent said to have flown to England to finalise a renewal. They could go to town.
