"We are talking about that - I would like it", Guardiola said. I never did. If they want to play quick, we want to play quicker.
"Create a good second league and you will see how many players make it to the Premier League".
"But they are an opponent that has done better than us without him". "I never give Danilo four or five games in a row, and he is an incredible full back but sometimes I'm firm". "I trust the groundsman, I never made a phone call to say do this to damage our opponents".
The 19-year-old was highly rated by the club but has followed winger Jadon Sancho out of the Etihad after the England global left in the summer of 2017, going on to make a huge impact at Borussia Dortmund.
The current Premier League champions haven't won the competition since the 2010-11 season and they have only won three of their last seven FA Cup matches against teams from lower divisions.
Speaking ahead of City's Carabao Cup semi-final against Burton Albion, Guardiola joked: "I'm not the green-keeper".
Guardiola admitted that the importance of the victory was not lost on him, saying: "Losing to Liverpool we would have been nearly out and we played knowing we were in or we were out". You get your games in the cup and any time a young lad gets an opportunity you've got to shine and show the manager - that's what I'm trying to do.
Pep Guardiola has defended Manchester City's youth record after academy product Brahim Diaz left for Real Madrid in a £21 million deal. "Once we are here, we are going to try".
The now much coveted Jadon Sancho joined Borussia Dortmund past year, and has flourished since leaving England in pursuit of regular first team football. "We wish him all the best because he's a nice guy". Real Madrid is not a bad step, so hopefully he can take the minutes he wants and that he didn't want here for many reasons.
