Pep Guardiola Bites Back at 'Prestigious' Gary Neville's Poor Managerial Record

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola responded angrily to Gary Neville's claim that the Citizens manager should have a put youth-team player on the bench against Burnley, instead of just taking six substitutes.

"I think it's a joke, I absolutely think it's a joke", Neville said on Sky Sports.

It was the first time in my life, it was an exception. Forget the fact of how much money they've spent, six players on the bench is like a protest.

Both Manchester clubs are reportedly tracking his progress, though United could have the upper hand after Man City's business with Ryad Mahrez, which saw the Algerian hand in a transfer request on Deadline Day in January before City pulled out of the deal, unsettling the player and the team. That is the reason why I didn't call one up. "It's so serious. And he should know that because he was a manager. for a short time".

Russian Jet Carrying 71 Crashes Just After Takeoff
Russia's emergencies ministry has confirmed the crash to local to media, although an official statement has not yet been released. Debris and human remains were spread over a radius of a kilometer from the crash site, investigators said.

Thoughts on Guardiola's comments?

"After that I went to the second team, but the second team in an hour and a half were going to play a game so I felt I'm not going to call the player to go to the bench when the substitute is normally Brahim [Diaz] or Yaya [Toure] or another one. If the training session had been at 11 in the morning I'd have had 18 but it's not a big issue". Sometimes I take that decision and of course the prestigious pundit can say whatever he wants. Management is not a book where every time you do the same things. It is not a book where we have to follow the rules.

City welcome Leicester City to the Etihad Stadium, but Silva could again be absent due to injury.

Fifth-placed Chelsea could close the gap on Mourinho's side to three points if they beat West Brom on Monday Night Football. "He is so important for us".

NASA space probe takes 'furthest ever' photo from Earth
The New Horizons probe took an image which is the furthest ever created from Earth, beating a record set by NASA's Voyager probe. So how does New Horizons send back images, even blurry ones, through all that space? Two hours later, it broke it again.

Whether you agree with Neville's stance or not, Guardiola didn't seem too bothered about the furore that surrounded his squad selection at Turf Moor as he poked fun at Neville on Friday by saying: "We will have 18 players on the bench - and Gary Neville can be happy". It's simple like that.

Manchester United are set for a battle with local rivals Manchester City for the signature of Harry Maguire this summer, according to reports in the British media.

"I wish as soon as possible [Mahrez] can come back and play because he is an extraordinary player".
