Guardiola appeared agitated that the German brought up the topic ahead of their trip to Anfield and suggested that mind-games were at play.“When I see Jurgen I will tell him how many weeks we were off,’ Guardiola said.“I’m surprised. I didn’t think Jurgen was that type of manager.
“Jurgen has to see the calendar again.“He knows it’s not true, come on.“Sometimes people do it for the purpose… I did not think he was that type of guy.“Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe it was a misunderstanding.”The Premier League moved City’s trip to Everton on December 28, just four hours before kick-off.
Guardiola’s men returned to training two days later with a heavily depleted squad.City however won at Chelsea on January 3 without seven first-team regulars, some missing with injuries.
