Pep Guardiola, who is in charge of Manchester City, has responded to Bruno Fernandes’ claim that the FA Cup final means more to Manchester United than to his team.
Fernandes expressed in front of the Wembley conflict on Saturday that Assembled’s players would be more spurred to win the prize since they have not won it starting around 2017.
However, Guardiola has refuted the claims made by Fernandes and maintained that his own players are just as eager to win the trophy.
Guardiola stated, “I didn’t speak with Bruno Fernandes and company to know exactly why it means more to them, the emotional reason why they are going to play the final.”
“I am aware that it is a very significant trophy for us. We’ve always lost it in four years. We have lost twice in the final.
“We are aware of its significance for both our fans and our club. We’ll try to win it as best we can.
City have come out on top for four Chief Association championships and two Association Cups under Guardiola, yet they have always lost the FA Cup since the Spaniard assumed responsibility.
Since 2011, when City defeated United 3-1 in the League Cup, this will be the first major final between the two teams.
Saturday’s match is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. BST.
