Manchester City fans react to Guardiola who had urged the fans to attend their Games.

Manchester City

manager

Pep Guardiola

has asked more fans to attend Manchester City’s home games after seeing 38000 fans at the stadium in his side’s Champions League clash against

RB Leipzig

.

The club’s supporters don’t seem to be happy with what the Spanish head coach has said as the general secretary of City's official supporters' club

Kevin Parker

, has asked Guardiola to focus on his job instead of telling the fans what to do.

"[What he said] did surprise me,"

Parker said.

"I'm not sure what that's got to do with him. He doesn't understand the difficulties that some people might have getting to a game at the Etihad on a Wednesday evening at 8pm.

"They've got kids to think of, they might not be able to afford it, [and] there are still some Covid issues about. I don't see why he comments on it.

"He's absolutely the best coach in the world but, in the nicest possible way, I think maybe he should stick to that.

"It just takes the edge off what was a good night. People are talking more about Pep's comments than a fantastic game. To question the support, which is effectively what he is doing, is disappointing and uncalled for.

"It does also play into the hands of supporters from other teams who want to take every opportunity to have a go at City for what they think are the poor attendances.

"People refer to the Etihad as the 'Emptyhad'. It's a little bit of fun by the opposition supporters but there's no justification for it. It's not factual. Our attendances are generally excellent."

Here is what Pep Guardiola said after his side’s victory in their opening match in the Champions League against RB Leipzig.

"I would like more people to come to the next game on Saturday.

"We will need the people next Saturday, please, because we will be tired. I invite all our people to come next Saturday, 3pm, and watch the game."
