Sergio Aguero calls Guardiola ‘crazy’ after Man City beat Sheff Wed in FA Cup

Sergio Aguero joked that Pep Guardiola is “crazy” after copping an earful from the Manchester City boss despite scoring the winner.

Guardiola berated Aguero when he substituted him for Raheem Sterling after he netted to earn City an FA Cup quarter-final at Newcastle .

Aguero said Guardiola wanted him to run in behind Sheffield Wednesday’s centre-halves and shrugged off his outburst.

“He said when Riyad or Bernardo receive the ball just to move in behind the centre backs,” he said. “He’s focused on that. It’s fine, he’s fine. Always he’s a good manager and crazy!”

Guardiola saw the funny side when told what Aguero had said about him.

“I substituted him for Raz to make movements into the space,” he said. “I like to be crazy and a good manager!”

Guardiola also said Kevin De Bruyne missed out with a back problem which makes him doubtful for Sunday’s Manchester derby.

“Kevin had a problem, he was not fit,” he said. “The last game, in the last minutes he fell down in a bad position and had a problem in his back.

“Hopefully it’s not much, but I don’t know right now.”

Guardiola was not bothered about being drawn away to Newcastle in the last eight and is just happy to be through.

“The important thing is that we’re there,” he said. “We want to be in the draw and we’re in the draw.

“This is our fourth game away in a row and we have another one at Old Trafford on Sunday.

“We didn’t concede one shot on target, which means a lot.”
