Guardiola disagrees with Solskjaer on tactical fouling claims

24 Apr 2019, 06:00

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola had denied claims by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that his team will use tactical fouling to prevent Manchester United from counter-attacking in Wednesday's crunch derby. 

City must win the match to reclaim their position at the top of the standings, while United will be looking to give their top-four hopes a big boost. 

On Tuesday morning, Solskjaer raised concerns at their opponent's tactics saying: "City will 'snap at your ankles and heels and kick you." 

When informed of Solskajer's comments, Guardiola told Sky Sports: "Did he say that? With 75 per cent the average, or 65-70 per cent average of the ball, how do you do that?

"I never prepare a game in my 10 seasons as a manager thinking about these kind of things, never. And my players can talk better than me about that. The players who I had in Barcelona, Bayern Munich and here.

"I'm concerned about many, many other things about the game we have to play to beat them than these kind of things. Tomorrow in the press conference after the game you can ask him (Solskjaer) again about that."
