Pep Guardiola Champions League

Man City boss Pep Guardiola hit back at Patrice Evra and Dimitar Berbatov after they criticized his squad following their Champions League exit. Guardiola hit back at the duo saying he beat them in two Champions League finals. Evra and Berbatov were part of the teams that were destroyed by Barcelona in the 2009 and 2011 Champions League finals. The duo said that the City squad lacked leadership and believe that Guardiola cannot train players with personality.

“It’s the same character and personality that we lost in Madrid in the last two or three minutes. Former players like Berbatov, Clarence Seedorf, and Patrice Evra and these types of people were there, and I played against them. I didn’t see this kind of personality when I destroyed them, we destroyed them, in the Champions League final against United,” Pep Guardiola said after Patric Evra and Dimitar Berbatov criticized his team. “It’s the same character and personality. You cannot have personality because we conceded two goals in one minute when we have two chances to score? And after the last four games, we score 22 goals, and we have an incredible personality.”

“What Kevin De Bruyne did [at Wolves] was exceptional. It continues to be exceptional. The reaction of Kevin de Bruyne leaving the Champions League was wonderful, Man City went out of Europe in the most devastating fashion,” Gary Neville said. “I’ve been there where you have gone out in the type of way, and it’s horrible, it really does have a big impact on you. The way in which they have reacted on the pitch is brilliant, and the way they have reacted off the pitch by signing Haaland is devastating. It’s saying: ‘we have recovered, we are taking it in our stride, and we are going again.’ They have stepped ahead.”
