Man City boss Pep Guardiola retorted to Patrice Evri claiming he ‘can’t train people with personality’

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has responded to Patrice Evra’s claims that he is unable to ‘train people with personality’ after they exit the Champions League semi-finals.

Manchester United legend Euro, who has now turned to understanding, believes the current City team is severely short of leaders, despite returning from a broken heart to beat Newcastle and take a step closer to the Premier League title.

The former left-back has also labeled City as a ‘money-based’ team and has even claimed that players who move to the Etihad do so solely because of their lucrative jobs.

Guardiola, however, responded to Evra’s recent claims by insisting that he could be dropped from the list of great players he led in Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich and now City.

He also joked that Evra may be so brave with his comments to return to his former club United.

The Spaniard said, ‘Maybe [Patrice] Euro is right or maybe doing a good quote to go back to Manchester United and work there.

‘I’ve had beautiful, amazing players in my past in Barcelona, ​​Bayern, Man City. I could give a good list in terms of personality and character. Most of them have won world championships, European championships, UCLs and leagues. ‘

The 51-year-old also responded to the defender’s claims that his current side of the City lacks leadership and personality.

He added: ‘Patrice – if we were together, I would show you the personality and character of my players right now that we have, absolutely.’

All of these comments came after the Euro hit Guardiola after City left Champions League for Real Madrid – as they seemed to reach the final before a late return led them to miss a trip to Paris later this month.

“Manchester City needs leaders, but Guardiola doesn’t want leaders,” the 40-year-old said along the way Marca. ‘He doesn’t want a personality. He is the leader.

‘So when they’re in trouble they don’t want to …

‘They have no one on the ground to help them.’

He added: ‘That’s how he chooses his teams, he can’t train people with personality. He did it in Barcelona, ​​but he is building his team to control everything.

‘When things go wrong, he always decides.’

Guardiola has a history of quarrels with players.

In Barcelona, ​​the tactician brought Zlatan Ibrahimovic to his technically talented side to add another dimension to their attack, although their relationship has deteriorated.

The great frontman Ibrahimović got tired of what he believed was favoring the then 22-year-old Lionel Messi, and was later transferred to AC Milan.

In his autobiography, he said, ‘I yelled,’ You don’t have balls! ‘ with him and probably worse things than that.

‘You’re kidding about Jose Mourinho. You can go to hell! ”

Yaya Toure and Guardiola also have long-standing animosity. In an interview with France Football 2018, the now retired midfielder accused the manager of having problems with black and African players – although he has now apologized for those comments.

The legend of the city of Toure left in 2018 after a successful stay at the club for eight seasons, but accused Guardiola of ‘having problems with Africans wherever he goes’.

Samuel Eto’o, Alexander Hleb and Joe Hart also had disagreements with Guardiola.

Euro also believes that most players join City just for the money and is not impressed with the way they are splashing money.

‘The city was wrong, that’s true. They are traumatized. They remind me of PSG: they are money-based clubs.

“Real Madrid also has money, but it has a story behind it; Manchester City only has money and the players go there to play solely because of that, ‘he added.

‘Then they win trophies, of course, but the player decides to go to Manchester City just because he offers you more.’
