Guardiola hits out at FA Cup despite 1-0 win against Chelsea



Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola in a post-match statement hit out at the Football Association, FA, for the scheduling of their FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

In a post-match statement, Man City boss said he didn’t understand how his side ended up winning Chelsea.
