PEP GUARDIOLA IS THE LATEST VICTIM IN THE HISTORY OF GOOD COACHES THAT HAVE STRUGGLED AND SUFFERED FROM THE RUGGEDITY OF THE EPL
PEP GUARDIOLA; A decorated name in his generation and considered the best in his trade. There is no doubt that his a good coach and a wonderful manager, a joy to watch. IN FACT he has the highest number of trophies won since he started his coaching career, averaging two or more trophies a season. Superb!
Guardiola has not been 3 goals down by 24minutes before, he’s not gone 4 home games without a win in the league before. Most of his personal records in league matches have been broken and is set to be smashed based on the way things are going for him and his boys currently. Right now many think he cant wait for the january transfer window to open, saying if it was up to him it will open on Monday by 7am.
Man city English record signings of John STONES and Raheem STERLING dont fit the bill, Leroy SANE, Ilkay GUNDOGAN, NOLITO and Claudio BRAVO are all performing below expectation and are putting unusual pressure on the coach.Huge amount of money was spent by City for guardiola to succeed. But the same methods that seem to generate numbers of tropphies at bayern and barca are not working at all with the current players at his disposal. At barca he had Messi, Xavi, Iniesta and co. to call on and at bayern there was Robben, Ribbery, Lewandowski and co but in City Sergio Aguero is getting sent off and David Silva is hiding in diffiult games.
After announcing his appointment with MAN CITY while he was still at BAYERN, Guardiola wouldn’t have imagined that he would be in such a situation in just 14 league games into the season after starting so well with 18/18 points. Fast forward 3 months ands He’s already been knocked out of the EFL cup, 4th in the league table, he is facing the possibility of of playing DORTMUND, A. MADRID, JUVENTUS, NAPOLI and MONACO. Arsenal next weekend after the midweek fixture, still without Aguero, Fernandinho and Kompany plus No Xmas break. He must be thinking otherwise by now.
Once again Welcome to the premier league PEP.
