Typical excuses in football for losing games range from refereeing decisions to fixture congestion. But when tasked with defending failures on the pitch, both managers and players have shown they can be extremely creative when passing the buck.
Recently we had Pep Guardiola saying the match ball was too light and this is why Man City couldn’t score against Wolves. Pep, really ?? The match ball being light ?? Really ??
Some of these excuses are beauties I must say!
