Manchester City defender Oleksandr Zinchenko had to interrupt his wedding to defend his sports reporter wife.  His new bride, Vlada Sedan, placed the blame for his team's Champions League loss to Lyon on manager Pep Guardiola.


Zinchenko’s new bride, Vlada Sedan – who is a sports presenter in her native Ukraine – is among those to have taken aim at Guardiol a, saying on her YouTube channel : “You saw what happened. I'm not a football player, not a coach, not a critic or an analyst. I understand that my opinion is not authoritative.

“Perhaps I have no right to say this, and perhaps Zinchenko will forbid me, but to put it mildly, in order not to swear, this is completely Guardiola's fault.

“At such a crucial moment, using such an experimental tactic for City was a bummer. I have no right to criticise, but why play three central defenders?

“I simply have no words because to have such a line-up. Look at the players City have, what a bench. Literally on a few clubs in the world can boast having such players at substitutes.”

Zinchenko released a statement about his wife's comments on his wedding day.  He first distanced himself from what she said then defended her right to criticize his manager as a fan of Manchester City.

Talk about getting a marriage off on the right foot...

If these two weather this early storm they can get through anything.  And look at her, she's smoking hot, so they will definitely be able to weather this storm.
