Maria Guardiola showered her dad with praises after guiding Man City to yet another FA Cup final.

Pep Guardiola’s daughter, Maria, took to social media to congratulate the Man City coach for reaching the FA Cup finals in back-to-back seasons.

Manchester City defeated Chelsea 1-0, thanks to a late dagger by Bernardo Silva in the second half, on Saturday, April 20.

The Blues were wasteful in front of goal and were forced to pay darely when Bernardo struck an 84th-minute winner.
