Manchester City v Burton Albion: Carabao Cup semi-final preview

Limerick ace primed for glamour semi-final date with Premier League giants Manchester City

However, Guardiola was accepting of his decision to move on ahead of City's League Cup semi-final meeting with Burton Albion this week, saying: "Hopefully other players won't decide to move on".

Philippe Sandler finally made his Manchester City debut in their comfortable 7-0 FA Cup win over Rotherham United.

"I am not the groundskeeper", Guardiola said. If they (Liverpool) want to play quick, we want to play quicker.

It was another powerful attacking performance by Pep Guardiola's defending Premier League champions against a side who are 21st in the second tier.

The Belgium worldwide has been with the Club since 2008 and has made 348 appearances to date and is City's most successful captain of all time.

When asked if he was disappointed that Diaz had left the club for Madrid, Guardiola said he was not - he then added: "I wish him all the best".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes Brahim Diaz's departure for Real Madrid is a sign of good work being done by the club's academy despite the loss of another bright prospect.

Sources told ESPN FC that Brahim was frustrated by a lack of first-team opportunities but Guardiola said young players must be patient at leading clubs.

"It is essential to have a strong squad to compete on all fronts, because without quality you can not win one, never mind four". "If you want to stay, stay".

It was claimed they allowed the grass to grow much longer than the 23 millimetres the manager usually demands.

Rotherham's record defeat in this cup tournament was 6-0, but a new one was set by Sane who shoved off two defenders near the box before cutting onto his right foot to get a shot away, which deflected past a hapless Rodak. "We have an opponent [Liverpool] that has done better than us, without us having him, and that can happen". Benjamin Mendy, who has been out for two months with a knee injury, could be fit to return to first-team training in the next two-to-three weeks. "I never made a phone call to say "do this to damage our opponents". If you want to go, the openings will be there.
