Pep Guardiola: “Congratulations to Arsenal”

Manchester City Manager Pep Guardiola was gracious in defeat after watching his side go down 2-1 to Arsenal in the semi-final of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

The Spaniard shared after his club’s defeat, “Congratulations to Arsenal. We will come back stronger next season. We are not in final. We tried to do it, to create more chances so I don’t have regrets. We tried to do what we wanted to do.

“We have three or four days to recover. Today we are sad and as soon as possible we will stand up. We tried to change many things. Some days we did it but results show who you are, they could be better, could be worse,” he concluded.

Manchester City dominated the first half and took the lead in the game through Sergio Aguero’s breakaway goal, but Arsenal dug deep and battled back and deserved their win.

Guardiola though will no doubt believe his side were a tad unlucky hitting the woodwork twice in the match, in addition to having a goal controversially disallowed.
