Manchester City fans have told Pep Guardiola to stick to coaching after the Spaniard made comments about empty seats in home UEFA Champions League games.
The former FC Barcelona manager made a call to the club's fans to add more numbers this weekend after the followers filled 38,000 of the 55,000 available seats during Wednesday's 6-3 Champions League win over RB Leipzig.
However, the general secretary of the club's fans has demanded Guardiola to be more considerate of the difficulties that affect them.
"[What he said] did surprise me," Kevin Parker said to Sky Sports.
"I'm not sure what that's got to do with him. He doesn't understand the difficulties that some people might have getting to a game at the Etihad on a Wednesday evening at 8pm.
"They've got kids to think of, they might not be able to afford it, [and] there are still some Covid issues about. I don't see why he comments on it," he added.
The supported then acknowledged that Guardiola is the best in the business of coaching and therefore should concentrate on that.
"He's absolutely the best coach in the world but, in the nicest possible way, I think maybe he should stick to that.
"It just takes the edge off what was a good night. People are talking more about Pep's comments than a fantastic game. To question the support, which is effectively what he is doing, is disappointing and uncalled for," Parker said.
