Is Man City arrogant by insisting that their FA cup match should hold in spite of Covid-19 outbreak?

Is Man City arrogant by insisting that their FA cup match should hold in spite of Covid-19 outbreak?



On Tuesday, the Covid-19 virus was discovered in both Pep Guardiola and his assistant Juanma Lillo, who were both infected. Both coaches are among the 21 people who have been isolated at Manchester City, which also includes seven first-team players. However, the club has made no indication that the FA Cup match against Swindon Town FC will be postponed.

In actuality, assistant coach Rodolfo Borrell will be in charge of Manchester City's journey to the County Ground to take on Swindon Town FC on Saturday, November 18. It is unclear whether Manchester City is acting in accordance with the English Football Association law that requires teams to fulfill fixtures once they have up to 13 outfield players, or whether they are being pretentious.


Pep Guardiola and Juanma Lillo are two of the best players in the world.

As previously stated, Manchester City can hardly find their match among the 19 other clubs in the Premier League, thus it is almost unfathomable that a League Two side will be able to defeat them! However, given the absence of both Pep Guardiola and Juanma Lillo, it is puzzling that the match was not called off. If it had been a Premier League match, it is highly likely that Manchester City would have sought for a postponement in the same way that Liverpool did against Arsenal, and that the request would have been approved.

Regardless of whose team Manchester City field against Swindon Town, they will be the overwhelming favorites to win the match. Even in the face of this, Swindon Town still have a realistic chance of pulling off what may be the most memorable upset of the season.

Both Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp are enthusiastic about Covid-19.

A curious side effect of this outbreak is that the devouring Covid-19 has affected both Jürgen Klopp and his assistant manager Pep Ljinders. According to reports, other Liverpool players have also tested positive for the virus. Burnley has not been left out either, since it has been claimed that an epidemic of Covid-19 has occurred there as well.

Perhaps, rather than criticizing Manchester City for wanting to play the match (despite the problems with Covid-19), we should express our appreciation for their efforts. Keeping a clean slate of matches is probably a good idea for their own safety..
