Burnley boss Dyche: Guardiola giving up on Man City youngsters

Burnley boss Sean Dyche says Pep Guardiola has given up on developing youth at Manchester City.

Ahead of today's clash, Dyche said he feels Guardiola is no longer a champion of youth with the make-up of his potential title-winning side different to the ones in years gone by.

He said: "I remember Pep himself when he was at Barcelona talking about why buy players when you can play young players, but even he now at Man City they're buying players, there are not many young players coming through the academy that they're playing.

"They're buying players fit for task, or virtually fit for task - that's the demands of the Premier League."
