Guardiola defends Aguero and Kompany exclusion from Barca game….

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola had a press conference this afternoon ahead of the Sunday’s home game against Southampton and he was asked about the future of Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany.  Aguero started on the bench in their 4-0 defeat by Barcelona on Wednesday with Kompany not in the matchday squad. “They are the future for Manchester City,” says Guardiola. “Vincent Kompany was not perfect fit and that is why we took the decision.” And Aguero? “It was a tactical decision. I wanted one more midfielder, I tried to keep the ball in the Camp Nou and when you have the ball, Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez don’t. “I spoke with Sergio and he was understanding, I thought in the last 30 minutes, with the Barcelona centre-halves tiring, he could help a lot from the bench. When Sergio decides to leave it will be his decision. Next time before you (the media) decide he is not in my plans you can call me.”
