Guardiola bursts after Manchester City’s win over Tottenham: “Arsenal will destroy us; I don’t recognize this team.”

After Manchester City’s 4-2 triumph against Tottenham last night, manager Pep Guardiola took aim at his players and the home crowd.

After the 4-2 victory, Guardiola chastised practically every single member of his squad by name, insisting that they are nowhere close challenging Arsenal for the Premier League title.

At halftime, the defending champions were booed off, which appeared to irritate the 52-year-old, and he indicated the team had become complacent with success.

“With this lack of emotion, I can announce that we will not win anything this season,” Guardiola remarked.

Premier League


“[We lacked] guts, passion, fire, desire to win from minute one. The same with the fans, they are silent for 45 minutes. I want my fans back. The fans have to shout.

“They booed because we were losing, but not because we played bad. We played good. We were better. They booed because we were losing, but maybe it’s like our team.

“Maybe they’re too comfortable because we have won four Premier Leagues in five years. After we scored a goal they react, but tsch, that is not the point.

“I don’t recognise my team, they [previously] had the passion and desire to run. Do you think we are going to chase the gap to Arsenal the way we are playing? No way.”

Guardiola also said: “I want a reaction from the whole club – everyone. We are a happy flowers organisation. I don’t want happy flowers. I want to beat Arsenal. Play this way and Arsenal will destroy us.

“We are far away from the team we had in previous seasons. Do you think this comeback will happen every time? It won’t.

“Today we were lucky. If we want to win something or compete – but complaining, complaining, complaining – no chance we will win anything.

“There is something in the clouds, that you cannot express, that we just don’t have.”
