Pep Guardiola, along with Jurgen Klopp, have stepped up to fill the press conference void left by Arsene Wenger and that means reporters have to ask him questions that have absolutely nothing to do with him or his team whatsoever.
Of course, this week there is only one thing journalists seem to care about.
It’s not the racism by Yeovil fans, or the fact the FA just brushed it under the carpet and ordered the match replayed (which Yeovil won).
Nor is it Jose Mourinho’s PR machine trying to land him the Arsenal job. Nor more clubs admitting historical sexual abuse.
Nope, it’s Granit Xhaka telling Arsenal fans to ‘f**k off’.
Naturally, ahead of City’s game against Southampton, one industrious reporter asked Pep what he thought.
“We have to respect our supporters, it’s not easy for the players sometimes,” replied Guardiola. “I can understand Xhaka – the emotion of that moment even if I don’t know exactly what’s going on inside.
“Maybe I’m not the best guy to say that because sometimes I lose my emotions and cannot control myself but you have to try because at the end of the day it’s just a game so have fun and try to do your best.
“I’m pretty sure Xhaka gives absolutely everything to do his best for Arsenal and their team-mates to get them winning games.”
