Shcheglova claimed on her YouTube channel that it was all Guardiola’s fault for using an experimental technique for City, which ultimately led to their elimination from the Champions League. Zinchenko later explained why his wife’s emotions were so strong in his own words. The footballer claimed that his wife’s criticisms of his coach’s tactical tactics were solely a reaction to her disappointment following City’s loss to Lyon.

After his better half began to get harsh abuse from Guardiola’s supporters, Zinchenko felt forced to step in and have a say.
