Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hit back at two former Manchester United players. Patrice Evra and Dimitar Berbatov for criticizing the mentality of navy blue sails After being knocked out of the Champions League last week, Manchester City lost out to the final with Liverpool following a stunning comeback from Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
After being eliminated in the European stage Evra accused Guardiola in a way that He doesn’t want someone who is strong and a leader in his dressing room. “Manchester City needs a leader but Guardiola doesn’t need a leader ,” Evra said. he is the leader himself That’s why when they have a problem they don’t want to. So they have no one on the field to help them.”
Meanwhile, Berbatov compares Man City’s elimination to Real Madrid to how ‘small clubs’ have dealt with the pressure. “If a small team that isn’t that good and has a lot of tactics concedes two goals at the end of the game. We’d say it’s because they’re a small team with a small way of thinking. And there is no heart to win,” Berbatov said.
But when asked about the criticism he had for City’s heart after the defeat to Madrid , Guardiola took the opportunity to remind Evra and Berbatov of his lead. Barcelona triumphed over Manchester United in the Champions League final in 2011. “The answer is simple. It’s the UFABET same character and personality that we lost in Madrid in the last few minutes, the same way,” Guardiola said. “Like ex-players with expertise like Berbatov, Seedorf and Patrice Evra, these kinds of people they are there.”
“When I play with them I didn’t see this kind of personality when we (Barcelona) destroyed them in the Champions League final against Manchester United, it’s the same character and personality . Because we concede two goals in one minute. When we had two chances to score in Madrid? In the last four games we’ve scored 19 goals with unbelievable personalities.
“I’m sorry but I strongly disagree about that. Personality is what we’ve done in the last five years, every three days maybe Liverpool will win all four. Maybe they’ve only won one title but you’re going to say they don’t have personality, character, they haven’t had an incredible season like that? Even if they lost 1-2 points in the Premier League for us, did they have a bad season? They don’t have a character? Of course they have.”
