Pep Guardiola is the most successful Premier League coach of recent years. He already has 5 titles to his name, yet he still faces criticism from time to time. And when he has spoken out, he has received a harsh response from Jamie Carragher.
Carragher took a dig at Guardiola
In the last six years, Manchester City have dominated the Premier League five times. The absolute domination and domination has been mainly arranged by Pep Guardiola, although logically the Qatari owners are helping the club’s ambitions a lot.
In England, the most famous three ‘pundits’ are the experts who comment on everything that happens in football. Garry Neville, Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher are also well placed to do this thanks to their rich careers.
The Citizens are currently heading for a fourth title in a row. No one in England has ever done that, something Pep Guardiola alluded to after the draw with Tottenham.
“The way we played was great. I feel that if we keep the same level we will win the Premier League. We will win, again. They know how difficult it is to win the Premier League, otherwise they would have won four titles in a row. He won titles in the best era of Manchester United, but even he doesn’t have four in a row. Neither has Micah Richars won four titles in a row, nor has Jamie Carragher, although he hasn’t won the Premier League once of course,” Guardiola quipped according to Fabrizio Romano.
However, the former Liverpool defender did not like this remark. “ I think I probably would have won the title if Liverpool were owned by the state and broke the rules so much that we would have faced 115 charges from the Premier League!” replied Carragher.
115 rule breaches
He was alluding to the fact that Manchester City is owned by Qatari owners who pump huge amounts of money into the club and bring in expensive reinforcements every year.
Manchester City was charged in February with a total of 115 alleged breaches of FFP rules. The Premier League said the breaches relate to a duty to provide accurate financial information that gives a true and fair view of the club’s financial position, in particular its revenue, sponsorship income and operating costs. A verdict will not be reached until the summer of 2025.
