Pep Guardiola Can’t Explain Why Manchester City Struggle to Sell Tickets

Pep Guardiola can’t explain why Manchester City struggle to sell tickets for big games.

The English Premier League champions are in the midst of a big run-in to the end of the season, fighting for trophies in the league, Champions League and FA Cup.

Guardiola’s men will then go up against Brighton in the FA Cup semi-final tomorrow at Wembley – and they’ve had to hand back around 5,000 of their 35,000 ticket allocation for the game after failing to sell them.

That’s led to a lot of criticism and Guardiola was asked about it at his press conference today.

But he could offer no real explanation on why it seems to be a problem:

Considering City are competing for four of four trophies this term, you’d think it would be impossible to get tickets for their games, particularly at home.
