WATCH: Pep Guardiola gives advice to Manchester City ball boy

It looked like it could have been tactical advice to a substitute, but Pep Guardiola instead gave tips to a ball boy during Manchester City’s 5-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

While City ran out comfortable winners in the end at the Etihad, they were frustrated in the first half, with Palace in no rush to take set-pieces or goal-kicks.

Perhaps in a bid to speed things up, Guardiola had a chat with a young ball boy, putting his arm around his shoulder as he gave him some advice.
