CA­BALLERO SYMPATHISES WITH BRAVO

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports International Football -

Willy Ca­ballero ad­mits he could have got into the same mess as Clau­dio Bravo in Manch­ester City’s Cham­pi­ons League thrash­ing at Barcelona. Ca­ballero, the sec­ond-choice goal­keeper, had to come off the bench in the sec­ond half of the Lionel Messi-in­spired 4-0 de­feat at the Nou Camp af­ter Bravo was sent off for han­dling out­side the area. Bravo got stranded out­side his area and bat­ted away Luis Suarez’s at­tempted lob af­ter mis­cu­ing a pass straight to the former Liver­pool striker. But the Chilean, on what proved a dis­mal re­turn to his former club, had been car­ry­ing out the in­struc­tions of man­ager Pep Guardi­ola to op­er­ate as a sweeper when he blun­dered and Ca­ballero sym­pa­thised. He said: “We take the de­ci­sions in small sec­onds and in this case Clau­dio tried to keep play­ing, as we usu­ally do.”
