Read Pep’s Bizarre For City Slump Against Wolves

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola labelled the match ball used in the Carabao Cup “unacceptable” after his side reached the quarter-finals. City, so dominant in the Premier League this season, were unable to find a breakthrough against Wolves on Tuesday, needing penalty shoot-out heroics from Claudio Bravo to progress after a 0-0 draw.

Guardiola was unhappy with the Mitre match ball, which is usually used in Football League matches.

“It is not acceptable. The ball was unacceptable for a high-level competition,” the Spaniard said after the game. “It is too light, it moves all over the place, it is not a good ball. It is impossible to score with a ball like that and I can say that because we won, I’m not making excuses.”

“All of my players said, ‘What is that?’ I’m sorry [but the] Carabao Cup is not a serious ball for a serious competition.”
