Guardiola: "Now the games will be 100 minutes"
Manchester City lost to Arsenal in the Community Shield.
Arsenal andManchester City
played in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium, which ended in a 1-1 draw. Arsenal defeated Manchester City in the penalty shootout to win the match.
Manchester City were leading 1-0, but Arsenal equalized in the 100th minute of the match.
"It is not annoying, we have to get used to it. I had the feeling, not because we were winning 1-0, it was just the fact I had a feeling that much didn't happen to extend by eight minutes. But it is a good question for the international board [rule-making body the International Football Association Board] and all the people because they don't consult the managers, they don't consult the players." Guardiola said after the game.
"What is their opinion, we have to accept it. Now the games will be 100 minutes, that's for sure. It never happened today and it was eight minutes, imagine if they extend for goals and every time you score a goal in a game [that is] 4-3. You put 30 seconds, 45 seconds on for seven goals, tomorrow morning 9 a.m. I am here playing."
Manchester City achieved the treble last season. They will play against Burnley in their first Premier League match of the new season.
