Pep Guardiola has refused to apologise for criticising the lack of fans in attendance at Manchester City's Champions League game against RB Leipzig on Wednesday.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that City won the match 6-3 but after the final whistle Guardiola called on 'more people' to show up for his side's meeting with Southampton on Saturday. His comments attracted criticism from the Cityzens' supporters club, who told him to stick to coaching.
Asked whether he regretted his comments before the Saints games, Guardiola doubled down by saying: "An interpretation is an interpretation. I am not going to apologise for what I said. It's not the first time I said in my career - I said it at Barcelona and Bayern.
"But these guys don't understand my comments. I am here to defend what I said. When I make mistakes I will apologise but I will not apologise for what I said. I know who we are. I like the fans that we have."
