What is happening in Manchester? The city actually has nothing to complain about. After losing the start of the season, they managed to catch up and scored three straight wins. Even in the Champions League, the first three are a fact. But coach Pep Guardiola (50) threatens to resign.
What happened? After winning 6:3 at home against RB Leipzig in the first division, the star coach upset his fans. Guardiola complained of a lack of support, as “only” there were just over 38,000 spectators in the stadium (55,000 capacity) when the Bulls played. “Please, we need the fans next Saturday because we will be tired by then,” the Catalan said.
No apology from Babe
These words seem to have taken followers down the wrong path. The coach should focus on his work, counters Kevin Parker, General Secretary of the Citizens Supporters Association. “He just can’t understand the difficulty some people have in coming to a league game at 8 p.m. on Wednesday.”
In addition, they are still in a pandemic situation and ticket prices are also an issue in some cases. “I don’t understand why Pep Guardiola commented on that,” Parker said.
The coach’s answer is not long in coming. “I don’t have a problem with the fans. “If I had one, I would quit,” Guardiola said. He wouldn’t even apologize to Parker.
This Saturday, Manchester City will face Southampton at home. It remains to be seen how many fans will find their way into the stadium after Guardiola’s invitation. (my mom)
