German football legend Lothar Matthaus has called out Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola.
The World Cup winner is obviously not overly impressed with the former Barcelona manager’s coaching achievements in the game.
Marthaus did not hold-back when analysing Guardiola’s coaching career so far.
“With Pep Guardiola I have the feeling that he always wants to do something special in big games,” he told Bild, as quoted by Tribal Football.
“Barcelona had a DNA, a system he pulled through. Pep was successful there. With Bayern and City, he tried it over and over again with changes and failed again and again.
“He always wanted to show that he could do even better. I would like to tell him: Pep, you are a giant trainer – but please keep your system!
“I would describe it as egocentric: Yes, that’s a harsh word, but it is due to what he did: At Bayern, Robert Lewandowski even had to play left wing once. That did not work out at all.”
Pep Guardiola spent four seasons as Barcelona manager, winning 14 trophies across six different competitions before joining Bayern Munich.
