Guardiola causes storm in Mexico by mixing up America and Chivas

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has upset football fans in Mexico this summer, confusing two of the country's most historic teams.

On Wednesday, the Citizens will face America in a friendly match, but in the pre-game press conference, the Catalan coach appeared to have got them mixed up with rivals Chivas.

Chivas are the only club in Mexico to play exclusively with Mexican players, but Guardiola praised America for doing just that.

"America is special for playing only with Mexican players," said Guardiola.

"I have a great admiration for Mexican football.

"When I was here, I was influenced by many coaches, they are dynamic."

Guardiola spent six months with Liga MX side Dorados de Sinaloa, the last club of his playing career.

America lost 2-1 to Chelsea in Las Vegas on Saturday and will be hoping to improve their showing against the English champions on Wednesday.
