UK: 'I prefer the sex' - Guardiola denies claims his coaching is better than intercourse

United Kingdom, Manchester

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola held a press conference in Manchester on Friday ahead of the Manchester derby against local rivals Man Utd, which takes place on Sunday.

The coach was quizzed by journalists on a number of topics and was asked to comment on former Barcelona player Dani Alves' comment that Guardiola's coaching was ‘better than sex.'

Guardiola first joked saying "I prefer the sex, by far," but then explained that he is not loved by all. "I have another side, from Sweden and other places, where they don't like me so much," he explained.

Speaking about United's storied head coach Jose Mourinho, Guardiola said, "in the end we both are good guys. More than you'd expect."

City's boss also explained his wearing of a yellow ribbon in support of Catalan independence, an issue that was tackled last year and forced the Football Association to forbid him to wear it on the touchline.

Guardiola said, “I'm disappointed because people are still in jail after one year, being accused of something they didn't do."

English Premier League leaders Manchester City are currently unbeaten in the league and are nine points ahead of local rivals Manchester United, currently in seventh position.
