Clichy admits Man City boss Guardiola unhappy after Cup win

Manchester City fullback Gael Clichy admits manager Pep Guardiola was unhappy after their EFL Cup win over Swansea City.

Clichy revealed the manager demanded more control of the game in south Wales.

"The boss wasn't really happy about this," Clichy said. "It's one thing to play against a better side who create chances but it's not good enough when you give them [opportunities] through losing the ball in the middle of the park.

"We know what we did right and we know what we did wrong. The victory was the most important thing and of course we can improve.

"We didn't start well - the first half wasn't good enough and then we started to play a bit better in the second half."
