However, Guardiola insisted that it is not his problem if his words were misinterpreted and he is not going to apologise for what he said.

He said in a press conference“Did I say after the game that I was disappointed because the stadium was not full?

“Interpretation is interpretation. I’m not going to apologise for what I said.”

“Our fans will be there tomorrow.

“Hopefully [general secretary of the official Manchester City fans’ group] Mr [Kevin] Parker will be there to watch us”, he added.
