The Classy Reason Why Pep Guardiola Didn't Lift The Carabao Cup
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed why he decided not to join his players in the Royal Box to lift the Carabao Cup.
Shortly after their dominant 3-0 win over Premier League rivals Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, the Spaniard chose to stay on the Wembley pitch with his assistant as Vincent Kompany and co. lifted the trophy.
Moments after the ceremony, Guardiola insisted that he didn't go to celebrate because "It's for Manchester City, it's not for me."
He then continued, saying: "It's nice to see it from here. It's much nicer."
City were knocked out of the FA Cup fifth round on Monday night in a shock defeat to Wigan Atheltic, but Guardiola's side lifted that all important first trophy of the season after an emphatic win.
The treble dream continues and it looked like destiny from the off. Sergio Aguero chipped goalkeeper David Ospina in the first half after a poor Shkodran Mustafi mistake gave him a one-on-one situation.
Then captain Vincent Kompany made it two in the second half.
Manchester City players swarmed the injury-prone defender after he got on the end of Bernardo Silva's cut back from Kevin de Bruyne's corner. It was a fitting moment for Kompany, who has been out for large spells in recent months.
Arsenal failed to really test Ederson and his City back four throughout the second half, as the attacking threat of Aguero and co was too strong.
Pep Guardiola's side continued to threaten and the magician David Silva made it three in the 65th minute
