Guardiola calls for match suspension rather than playing behind closed doors

One of the big matches in world football at the moment, -Juventus vs Inter Milan-, was played with no fans and now, PSG vs BvB in the Champions League is set to be played behind closed doors too, something Man City manager Pep Guardiola does not understand or support.

In a press conference ahead of his side's clash against Arsenal tomorrow, Guardiola questioned this decision by sports and football boards asking, "is it worth to play football without the spectators?"

Guardiola said: "We are conscious of it because it has happened already in Italy. The league is suspended and in Spain the next two weeks are behind closed doors. It is going to happen here.

"The other issue you have to ask is, is it worth to play football without the spectators? We do our job for the people and if the people cannot come to watch us, there is no sense.

"I would not love to play matches in the Premier League or Champions League or the cups without the people.

"If without people I would prefer not to play, definitely. We are here for the people. Of course, if it is for one or two games I could understand but if it is longer, there is no sense."

In the next fixture against Arsenal, City is hoping to bounce back from Sunday's derby loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

This match will be played in a full stadium, as the FA is yet to announce any behind closed doors matches.
