Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola would be in trouble if he was coach of Barcelona or Real Madrid, Yaya Toure has said.
Toure recently revealed that the Spaniard was obviously appointed by the English club to deliver UCL glory.
According to him, the recent failures cannot be tolerated at Camp Nou or Santiago Bernabeu, and City owners have to start asking questions.
He added that the investment that Pep has enjoyed every year deserves the top trophies in football, so the board must start pressurizing him to make that happen.
His words, “Maybe if it was Barcelona or maybe Real Madrid, for sure he’s going to be in trouble,”
“We don’t have to be in any doubt that he has been brought to City to win the Champions League.”
“Now people are finding a way to say he’s coming just for the league or for anything. But you cannot lie about that because the budget the club have been giving to him year after year, he needs to have the trophy. He needed to have it. When you bring in a manager of this calibre he needs to have results.”
“Of course, Pep’s good but people are going to demand a bit more from him because of what they give to him. The expectations are going to be high. There’s not any club in the world like City can spend millions of pounds on players – young players and quality players are expensive.
“When you get these things, you have to give the trophy to the club. I don’t know what the board are thinking, it’s them that is going to make this kind of decision. I know City, they can have whatever manager they want because everybody knows they got the money to do it.”
“To be honest, these days what happens is all about man-management. You have to feel the players want to play for you.
“So many players don’t want to play with you then in a few weeks maybe the manager is going to be sacked. The player needs the confidence of his manager and the manager needs his players as well.
“For me, as a player, I always believe if you have to give 100 per cent then you have to give 100 per cent to the right person and the person who deserves my sacrifice. You cannot do things for people now if there’s no confidence or trust and it’s quite hard. The players have to be with the manager.”
