Guardiola: Real Madrid is not a bad step for Brahim to take

The second leg meeting of League One side Burton, managed by Nigel Clough, and Premier League champions City takes place at Albion's Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday, January 22.

Pep Guardiola has strenuously denied he ordered Manchester City's ground staff to let the grass grow longer ahead of last week's match against Liverpool.

"Create a good second team and you will see how many young players will be in the Premier League".

Diaz followed the path of Jadon Sancho, who is now pulling up trees at Borussia Dortmund and has gained global recognition after being called up to Gareth Southgate's England squad.

"David Silva, for example, he went on loan to become what he is right now".

"I am not disappointed that he has left and I do not want a player who wants to leave at the club". "I never did. If they want to play quick, we want to play quicker". Never we manipulated it, always we try to put water (on the pitch) but it's not necessary here with the weather, it rains a lot. If the guys are not happy... if you want to stay here it's because you want to stay here'. They are important players but the only one who made a decision to stay was Phil. We wish Brahim all the best and moving to Real Madrid is no bad step and hopefully he can get the minutes he wants.

"We want to cut the field all the time, all my career, 10 years as a manager".

Goal line technology is also being used, a week after the Gills had a goal ruled out against Southend United which they felt had crossed the line. It's hard for me to choose, but I never give Danilo four or five games in a row. I said many times, we did with Brahim the same we did with Phil (Foden) and Jadon (Sancho), we did absolutely everything but in the end the only one who decides to stay is Phil so that's all.

Guardiola, meanwhile has confirmed Benjamin Mendy has returned to training following a knee injury that has sidelined him since mid-November and he could be back in action within two weeks. After, maybe the managers in the Premier League will have more courage.

"I have many other issues to think about that. I never made a phone call to say 'do this to damager our opponents".
