Pep Guardiola: There's no one like David Silva

Pep Guardiola: There's no one like David Silva

He said: "In the world ranking of the clubs with the highest revenues we appear in fourth place, behind Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United".

Manchester City chief coach Pep Guardiola was fined almost $28,000 by England's Football Association for appearing on the touch line sporting a yellow ribbon in support of Catalan activists and politicians jailed for their role in an unconstitutional referendum on the region's independence from Spain.

"After we go to train in Abu Dhabi and after the worldwide break hopefully the players will come back safe without injuries and then we can think about Everton and the (Champions League) quarter-finals".

"I think they became stronger players - Xabi Alonso, Mikel Arteta, Fernando Torres, Cesc Fabregas - a lot of young players made a decision to come here, and play in that league".

"He came back and trained on Thursday".

"Some of them are better".

Rudy Gobert added 19 points and 16 rebounds, and Joe Ingles scored 20 for Utah, which has won 11 straight on the road. David West (Out - Arm): The Warriors have listed West as OUT for Sunday's game (Mar. 11) against the Timberwolves.

The Potters suffered their biggest defeat of the season in the reverse of this fixture, going down 7-2 at the Etihad Stadium in October, and since that loss they've won jus four of their 22 games played, those victories coming away at Watford, and home to Swansea, West Brom, and Huddersfield. He went back after the game against Basel last week but he came back, has trained and is ready to play against Stoke. They have no fixture this coming weekend, as scheduled league opponents Brighton are away to Manchester United in the quarter-final of the FA Cup, and there then follows a two-week worldwide break before City travel to Everton on March 31. His family and son are the most important thing.

"What has happened has happened".

Pep Guardiola has indicated that he will continue to give David Silva as much time off as he needs to be with his prematurely born son.

"He has survived to be one of the best players in England for a decade". "We are in touch a lot by telephone", said Guardiola.

The Catalan coach is not expected to discuss the possibility of a new contract during the break, and has given no public indication as to whether he intends to stay beyond the end of his current deal when it expires in June 2019. It means a lot.
