Responding to a post by Twitter account City Chief, many Sky Blues supporters have been praising the comparison of reactions to opposing styles from manager Pep Guardiola and rival boss Jurgen Klopp.
According to quotes from Football365 from back in the summer of 2017 after City drew the Manchester derby 0-0 at home, Guardiola refused to lament the Red Devils’ perceived style of play – saying that it would be ‘disrespectful‘. The Spaniard also went on to suggest that he didn’t want to judge any of his opponents, with Klopp’s reaction to going out of the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid slightly different.
Speaking to Marca, the German coach lamented Atletico’s style of play after the final whistle – going on to state that Diego Simeone’s side could play ‘proper football‘. As a result, many City fans have lauded Guardiola’s ‘class‘ response to tactics by comparison, worshipping the ‘measure of the man‘.
