Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed the hardest part of being Manchester City boss.

Guardiola has admitted that dropping his Manchester City players from the starting line-up is the hardest part of his job.

The quality and depth of the Manchester City squad often means world-class players are dropped to the bench.

“The most difficult by far, miles, miles away,” Guardiola admitted when asked about dropping players. “If you are a little bit sensitive, by far. There’s no solution, it’s hard. When players deserve to play and they cannot play, it kills me.”
