Guardiola “stole” the C1 from Manchester City

Having decided to innovate for the final of the Champions League, Pep Guardiola has drawn the wrath of the German legend, Lothär Matthäus.

Great favorite of the final of the European competition version 2021, Manchester City finally lost to Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel (1-0), last weekend, in Porto. A defeat with a bitter taste for the Mancunian supporters who were entitled to yet another innovation from the Catalan technician. The latter has decided not to field a defensive midfielder for the most important game of the season.

This tactical approach of Pep Guardiola has caused a lot of talk in recent days. The legend of Bayern Munich and Germany’s Lothär Matthäus harshly criticized the former FC Barcelona coach in his column for Sky Sport. « He stole the Champions League from the club and the fans with his squad roster, said the 1990 world champion. Now, he must listen to harsh criticism from all sides. »

Convinced that the responsibility for the defeat lies primarily with Pep Guardiola, Lothär Matthäus believes that the days of the Catalan coach at City are counted. ” I’m sure there will be internal discussions to part ways with him, he continued. The players will doubt him. Once again he tried something, wanted to present a stroke of genius at the worst possible time and he totally deserved to lose. It is guaranteed to lose a lot of credit for everyone, internally and externally, by doing this. Especially with his players. And it is difficult to recover. I wouldn’t be surprised if Pep Guardiola’s stint at Manchester City is over. »
