Pep sends a message on ‘respect’

Pep Guardiloa insists that he intends to show total respect for the Premier League by taking every game very seriously despite having won the title by a country mile.

That will start at the London Stadium this weekend when the runaway winners arrive in the east end for a game which David Moyes insists is as difficult as it gets.

Guardiola was responding to suggestions that goalkeeper Ederson could be allowed to take a spot kick during a penalty shoot out when City supporters chanted for him to do so .

Guardiola gave that idea very short shrift indeed stressing the huge importance of showing respect to the opposition.

He said:  “That is not going to happen because he is a goalkeeper. Respect for the opponents, respect for the competition. One situation is a shootout, maybe he can do that but not in a game.”

  1. No no that’s ok Mr Pep don’t feel you have to take it seriously on our behalf. We don’t mind your goalie taking the pens. Let him take the corners & FKs too. He can play up front in his jersey for all we care. You lads have had a hard season so you just take it easy & treat it like a Sunday afternoon kick about. We ain’t proud 😀😀😀
