Pep Guardiola called Tottenham ‘Harry Kane’s team’, and Mauricio Pochettino didn’t like that. Not a single bit. The Argentine hit back, using some rather harsh words for his Manchester City counterpart.
I know Pep… When he’s excited after an amazing win he struggles to keep his position and be a gentleman
Pochettino told reporters in a Press conference, ahead of Tottenham’s home game against Bournemouth in the Premier League.
It was disrespectful for many. When he was at Barca I never said ‘the Messi team’
the Argentine said, remembering the days when both of them worked in Spain.
I think it’s a sad comment because the players laugh about that. If you’re a manager you must show more, no? To be above this type of comment
the Tottenham manager also said. Guardiola made that comment while talking about who could challenge Manchester City for the title in the Premier League this season. The fact that he included Tottenham in the group of teams that could go all the way, but called them ‘Harry Kane’s team’, didn’t go down well, at all, with his Argentine counterpart, and for rather good reason…
