Zinchenko's Wag claims Guardiola told Man City star 'most important thing is to be liked by your wife' after her rant

MANCHESTER CITY star Oleksandr Zinchenko's partner has claimed that Pep Guardiola has not forgotten her infamous rant at his tactics.

Sports reporter Vlada Sedan alleged that the Spaniard told her footballer husband that the 'most important thing is to be liked by your wife'.

The 25-year-old publicly hit out at Guardiola's tactics following City's shock Champions League exit in August.

Sedan slated Pep for ditching his normal back-four to trial a back-three in the 3-1 defeat to Lyon where her hubby was left on the bench.

The row escalated to a point that Zinchenko released a statement on his wedding day to apologise for his wife's reaction.

Sedan has now claimed that Guardiola brought up the incident in response to the Ukraine international making a joke on his 50th birthday.

Speaking on her YouTube channel, as transcribed by Tribuna, she said: "It was his birthday – 50 years old.

"Zina (Zinchenko) is always Zina. Firstly compliments, best wishes, but then there must be a fly in the ointment.

"Zina told him, 'already 50, old age'. Kidding in his own style. Pep looked at him and said: 'Alex, the most important for me is to be liked by your wife and all will be okay'…"

Fortunately for Zinchenko there seems to be no bad blood between the pair following last summer's antics.


The 24-year-old has been a regular feature in Guardiola's recent side that have surged to the top of the Premier League.

He had been linked with a move away from the Etihad last month after attracting interest from four top-flight clubs including West Ham.

SunSport revealed in December that Wolves are lining up a return raid for Zinchenko –– two years after he turned down a £19million move there.
