Pep Guardiola Asked In Press Conference Why Man City Struggle To Sell Tickets

Pep Guardiola Asked In Press Conference Why Man 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 Premier 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.

Considering the club 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.

This isn't the first time empty seats have been spotted at the Etihad.

Manchester City were left red-faced after the number of empty seats spotted at the Etihad Stadium in their EFL Cup clash with Burton Albion earlier in the year.
