‘Will he be angry?’ Another loss to Tottenham, Guardiola is mean to Pochettino
Man City manager Josep Guardiola took out his anger on manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Man City lost 0-1 in the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) away match against Tottenham held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 6th (hereinafter Korean time)스포츠토토. ‘Tottenham’s main gun’ Harry Kane gave the winning goal and bowed his head. Man City (45 points) could not close the gap with Arsenal (50 points), who played one less game.
The British press Express said on the 6th, ‘Tottenham showed another strong performance against Man City. Tottenham manager Antonio Conte was recovering from surgery and could not direct the game, but he managed to win. Guardiola had room for provocative remarks. He risked angering coach Pochettino, who strangely left the team. He sent a nasty message. It was reported that Tottenham implied the label of being a team that relied on Kane.
“If you say ‘Kane’s team’, Pochettino will be grumpy,” Guardiola said. “I don’t want to. I speak on behalf of Manchester City. Kane scored his 267th goal for Tottenham that day. It is the club’s highest score.
There is a reason Guardiola has summoned Pochettino. Coach Guardiola thought Kane was on the rise of Tottenham from the 2016-2017 season. He defined Tottenham as ‘Kane’s team’. At the time, manager Pochettino accused Guardiola of “lack of respect for his opponents”.
