Guardiola proposed to kick it back in the FA Cup

Man City coach Pep Guardiola sees the abandonment of the FA Cup replayings as a solution for English football to reduce the current competitive density.

“League Cup and FA Cup will still take place, but we should skip the replay, and there are fewer teams from the First Division or the Premier League,” Guardiola said.

“The good thing in England is how people uphold the tradition, not only in sports, but also in culture and society. I admire that. But you should put in new things, to help the the tournament is getting better, “added the Man City coach.

“I did not say that the FA (Football Association) had to do that. When making this proposal, I did not expect the elimination of the FA Cup or the League Cup.”, he said

Man City are competing on all four fronts this season, including the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup and the Premier League. But the chances of Guardiola’s teachers and students defending the Premier League title are slimmer. After 24 rounds, they are 16 points less than the top of Liverpool – the team still has a match yet to play.

“That can happen. The records are always there to be broken. My Man City used to set records when some people thought that the score record in the Premier League was impossible to break. History always shows that”,Guardiola said casually when talking about Liverpool’ s chances.
