Man City priest duo get into another spat over substitution complaints

“I like him angry”…’Disciple of Giggs vs. Master of Giggs’

Pep Guardiola and Kevin De Bruyne got into an argument over the passion of the game.

However, despite the spat, Guardiola expressed his satisfaction with his protégé.

City played Liverpool to a 1-1 draw in the 28th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) on Nov. 11 at Anfield in Liverpool, England.

City took the lead in the 23rd minute through John Stones, but conceded a penalty to Alexis Sanchez five minutes into the second half. No further goals were scored and the game ended in a draw.

Guardiola made a bold substitution midway through the second half with the game still in the balance. With 24 minutes left in the second half, he took off De Bruyne and Julian Alvarez in favor of Mateo Kovacic and Jeremy Dockoo.

This sparked frustration. Der Bruyne was furious with Guardiola as he walked off the field, along with Jester. He was unhappy that he had been left out of the game when they hadn’t even taken the lead. When Der Bruyne expressed his displeasure, Guardiola went to his side of the bench and tried to explain the reason for the substitution.

Der Bruyne’s behavior after the game raised concerns that his relationship with Guardiola was on the rocks. However, Guardiola dismissed the controversy.

“Guardiola has revealed the reason for his altercation with De Bruyne,” the UK’s Cut Offside reported on Nov. 11.

When asked about the controversy in his post-match press conference, Guardiola said, “I’m happy. I like that he is angry. He will have the opportunity to prove me wrong in the next game,” he said, adding that he was happy that De Bruyne was passionate and unhappy with the substitution and that he would prove it in the future.

“We made the substitutions because we were lacking in certain areas. We needed to keep possession of the ball and that’s where some of the players were lacking, so we made the substitutions. We were better after the substitutions and that’s where I wanted to make a change, but we also need De Bruyne,” he explained.

This is not the first time that De Bruyne and 카지노사이트 Guardiola have been in the news for their controversial relationship.

In May of last year, during the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinal between City and Real Madrid, Guardiola jumped up from the bench to express his excitement when Der Bruyne lost the ball. Der Bruyne responded by telling Guardiola to “shut the fuck up”.

At the time, Der Bruyne’s behavior was controversial, but Guardiola said: “I love it. That we shout at each other. I like that energy and it’s not the first time this has happened. Nobody knows how much The Bruyne shouts at me on the training ground,” he said, adding that he is used to it and is happy about it.

As passionate as Guardiola and De Bruyne are about the game, their relationship seems too strong to be torn apart by complaints or name-calling.
