Guardiola ‘furious’ over decision that could benefit Liverpool

Their Premier League clash against Neil Warnock’s relegation strugglers was meant to be taking place on April 6 but will now take place on April 3, three days before their FA Cup semi-final.

City will play Brighton in the semis after they came from two goals down to beat Championship side Swansea City 3-2 in the quarter-finals over the weekend.

And the Mirror claims that Guardiola was ‘far from impressed’ with the Premier League’s move to reschedule the match to the week before.

The report continues by claiming that Guardiola thinks it could damage the Citizens hopes of winning a Premier League, Champions League, League Cup and FA Cup quadruple.

Guardiola recently publicly criticised the “crazy” schedule that his players will face in April.

He said: “So now Cardiff midweek, before the Tottenham first leg we have semi finals in Wembley so it’s crazy, the fixtures we have in April, that is why we need everybody.”

The Mirror says Guardiola is worried that the new schedule ‘hands Liverpool an advantage’ in the title race and had hoped that the fixture against Cardiff would be moved to a date in May.
