Man City boss Guardiola: Second place more important than FA Cup

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says finishing second in the Premier League is more important than winning the FA Cup.

City meet Arsenal in the FA Cup semifinals this week.

But Guardiola says: “It cannot be denied that the second place in the Premier League is more important than the victory in the FA Cup.

"We were not the best this season, the other team became the best, but we are still stronger than 18 other participants in the championship.

"Our goal at the end of the season is to keep the second place in the standings."
