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.
