Pep Guardiola sent a message of solidarity to Guido De Pauw, a Manchester City fan who was attacked in Belgium after our Champions League triumph against Club Brugge. The 63-year-old remains in a coma but is in stable condition following the incident, which occurred in a fuel station in Drongen after City’s 5-1 triumph on Tuesday evening.
Guardiola wore a t-shirt with the words ‘We’re with you Guido’ for his pre-match press conference against Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend. The manager expressed his best wishes to De Pauw, a member of the Blue Moon Belgium Supporters’ Club, and reiterated his commitment to him and his family.
“On behalf of all of the Club, from our Chairman Khaldoon [Al Mubarak], for him, we are quite optimistic,” said Guardiola according to the official club website. “In the last hours he is getting better and of course he has all of the support from the Club on what they need for the investigation.”
“A big hug for him and all his family. We wish soon he will come back to the Etihad Stadium to follow us at home games and away games. Hopefully, it won’t happen again. It’s difficult to understand why people can go to enjoy a football game and after, sometimes these terrible things can happen,” Guardiola added. “Hopefully, in Brugge, they will do the right investigation and they can take [action on] the people who have been involved in this terrible incident.”
Manchester City will next play against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday evening for their Premier League match. The football prediction is guessed to be 0-2 which means Manchester City will dominate the match.
