Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola took a dig at the Giallorossi in his most recent press conference ahead of City’s fixture with Newcastle.

The Spanish coach was asked about his team’s expensive transfer market and lack of results on the European stage to show for it.

Guardiola replied, “For me this is not a matter of money, and the fans don’t realise it.”

He pointed out the Giallorossi’s failure to reach Champions League football.

“Roma have also spent a lot of money, but they’re not in the Champions League,” he concluded.
