He solution was to call for a second league to be created in order to create a pathway for younger players to break into Premier League clubs' first teams.
Wednesday's League Cup semi-final first leg against League One side Burton is the sort of match in which Diaz might have expected to make one of his rare first-team appearances, and Guardiola admitted it was too soon to say if his team could be short-handed if they continue to progress in several competitions.
"And after, maybe the managers in the Premier League will have more courage to put them [in the team]".
Guardiola did discuss the length of grass with Jackson soon after his appointment, requesting that it should be no longer than 19 millimetres before settling on a compromise of 23 millimetres to account for the Manchester weather, but said there had been no intervention since. Young players need time - David Silva for example, he went on loan to big clubs to become what he is right now. 'They have gone their separate ways and everyone has their own plan in what they want to do, so fair play to them. "The players, their family, their agent; they decide what is best for them".
"Always we try to put water on it, but it's not necessary here".
"We don't want people who don't want to be here", said Guardiola. If the guys are not happy... if you want to stay here it's because you want to stay here'.
I'll be fit for Australian Open: Nadal
Nadal won the Australian Open in 2009 and would dearly love to add another title on the hardcourts of Melbourne. "I can't do my 100 percent".
Guardiola said about the assertion on the Anfield Wrap podcast: "I'm not the greenkeeper".
"We want to cut the field all the 10 years [of his career]".
"The only one who chose to stay was Phil and that's all".
"What we want and what we offer them is the chance to train with us and to earn the opportunity".
Meanwhile, Guardiola refused to be drawn on Liverpool's exit from the FA Cup with the Premier League leaders fielding a weakened team. We wish Brahim all the best and moving to Real Madrid is no bad step and hopefully he can get the minutes he wants.
"I never speak with the groundsmen.how many issues do I have in my head to think about the pitch?"
