A ‘devastated’ Manchester City fan believes Pep Guardiola should be SACKED after his latest Champions League failure.
City have once again failed to make it past the quarter-final stage, as they were dumped out by Premier League rivals Tottenham on Wednesday night in the most dramatic fashion.
Raheem Sterling celebrated too early as he was sensationally denied a stoppage-time winner by VAR, with the tie finishing 4-4 and Spurs progressing on away goals.
It was a disastrous result for quadruple-chasing City, and for their boss.
Guardiola has been hailed as the greatest football manager of a generation.
A serial winner who has won major trophies at every club he has coached, and yet he is again facing claims he is a fraud after his latest failure in Europe.
The Spaniard has already won the Champions League twice as manager of Barcelona, but in charge of big-spending Bayern Munich and even bigger-spending Manchester City he has not managed to reach the final.
With the resources at his disposal, that just isn’t good enough for some.
City’s mega-rich Qatari owners are probably among them, and another is Manchester City fan, Dave.
Calling into talkSPORT after Wednesday night’s disappointment, Dave said the Spaniard has hugely under-performed in charge of City’s millions and says a change in the dugout is needed.
He told The Sports Bar: “I’m absolutely devastated to be making this call…
“But if it was up to me, I would get rid of Pep Guardiola.
“He’s been here for three years and what has he done?
“He’s won one Premier League title and one League Cup – on penalties!
“In my eyes, if he does not win the Premier League this year, what has he done?
“We’ve got multi-billions to spend and we lost tonight to Spurs who have spent no money and their star striker is injured!
“We need somebody who is a proven winner – why would you not go for Jurgen Klopp?
“If Klopp wins the double this year, he’s done a lot better than Guardiola has in three years at Man City.”
