Success Watford teammate to become pastor after FA Cup final

Monday, 20 May, 2019

Progression to the final totalises €47 million (adding up last 16, quarter final and semi-final payments), with the Champions League victor getting €4 million, a further €3.5 million for contesting the UEFA Super Cup in August and then a final €1 million to whoever lifts the trophy.

Hornets' fans might just be praying for some divine intervention to aid the 38-year-old former Tottenham stopper, likely to be playing one last game before hanging up his gloves.

In City's way of another entry in the record books stand Watford, who are into their first Cup final since 1984.

City is suspected of breaking rules that monitor commercial income and spending on player transfers and wages, with leaked documents implying that club officials deceived UEFA for several years - in particular by disguising revenue from commercial deals secured by the club's owners. Incredibly, some journalists even questioned whether City should have stopped scoring in some games to show more respect!

"It wasn't that overconfidence where you're too overconfident and you make a mistake".

Here, Press Association Sport's Jim van Wijk takes a looks at some of the key talking points ahead of the showpiece fixture. In the 5th round City were drawn away to minnows Newport County and despite a spirited performance byu the Welsh side, City triumphed 4:1.

"People say how attractive it is but we have to win again and again and again and the players have to feel that".

However Deeney is backing himself to unsettle Kompany and City.

Watford have had a good season under the management of Javi Gracia and the FA Cup run has been a deserved reward for their efforts. After all, they had Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers on their side of the bracket, while having to face Crystal Palace in a tough fixture in the quarter-finals.

That's right - City are so certain that they will be challenging for trophies again next season that they have already arranged their accommodation.

Should Watford win their first FA Cup, United will have to kick off their European campaign in late July and play six matches to reach the group stage.

Qualifying rounds for next season's Champions League begin in June. Watford are a good, well organised side who are risky from set pieces.

"He's Iniesta-like, where he'll have people around them and they just get out of any situation".

"We won the most incredible Premier League ever and we are satisfied, we celebrated for a short time and then it's back to business", Guardiola said.

"We were happy for ourselves, not because we are for the other ones, so if someone was offended for another issue, I am sorry", he said.
