Pep Guardiola Sends Warning To Man United Ahead Of FA Cup Final

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola sends warning to Man United as he prepares his side for the Emirate FA Cup final against the Red Devils at the Wembley Stadium for the second consecutive times.

The Cityzens managed to secure a place in the final of the FA Cup after recording a 1-0 victory against Chelsea on Saturday. Bernardo Silva’s 84th minutes goal sent Pep Guardiola’s side to the final during the difficult match.

Man City players were not at their best during the match due to fatigue of playing two knockout matches in days. They were up against Real Madrid for 120 minutes in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final match on Wednesday before the Saturday clash with Chelsea.

They, however, managed to get the job done and Pep Guardiola was happy with the result and the determination of his players to make the final even though it was difficult.

The elated City manager, while speaking after the match said he loves to play at the England national stadium having recorded victory at the venue on many occasions, including the recent FA Cup glory some few months ago.

“To be here as Manchester City manager – with a chance to make the Final of this incredible competition once again – really is something very beautiful for me, my players and my staff. I love being at Wembley,” Pep said during the official matchday programme.

“I won two Champions League titles here with Barcelona – once as a player under the old Twin Towers back in 1992 when we defeated Sampdoria, and once as a manager in 2011 when we beat Manchester United.”
