Is this the worst excuse ever? Guardiola blames the BALL for failure of Man City's team

Pep Guardiola bizarrely blamed the match ball after Manchester City beat Wolves on penalties to scrape into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

City's reserve goalkeeper Claudio Bravo saved twice in the shootout to rescue the Premier League leaders following a goalless draw at the Etihad.

But Guardiola criticised the Mitre ball used in the competition, saying it was too light compared to the Nike version favoured by the Premier League.
