Guardiola offers his take on UEFA UCL draw slip-up

The Catalan manager was sympathetic to UEFA after the earlier draw error was detected and a second Round of 16 draw was held later in the day.


Pep Guardiola faced the media ahead of Manchester City's Premier League clash with Leeds United and was asked by reporters for his view on the Champions League Round of 16 draw having to be repeated due to an earlier admin. error.

The Catalan coach was sympathetic to UEFA's plight and was not in any way fazed by the prospect of a different opponent in the next stage of the competition.

City, top of the Premier League on 38 points after 16 games, are due to host 15th-placed Leeds United on Tuesday.

Guardiola said Leeds, who are 12 points behind City, will pose a challenge even in the absence of top striker Patrick Bamford and midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who are out injured.
