I’m so sorry – Guardiola apologizes to Man City player on overweight comments

The former Bayern Munich boss was explaining why Phillips had been left out of his squad for a Carabao Cup fourth-round tie against Liverpool.

The England midfielder has said the remarks were “a big knock to my confidence” when asked earlier this month.

Ahead of Tuesday’s Premier League clash with Brentford, Guardiola said: “I’m sorry.

“I do apologise to him. I’m so sorry.”

Guardiola also revealed he spoke to the 28-year-old, who is currently att West Ham on loan last month, about the issue.
