Pep Guardiola Replies Patrice Evra’s Criticism on Coaching Style
Guardiola was asked about Evra’s comments ahead of City’s Premier League clash against Wolves on Wednesday evening.
The Frenchman accused him of ‘taking away his players’ responsibilities’ and said he’s ‘glad he was never coached by him’.
Guardiola responded: “I don’t want personality? Well. I don’t agree, Patrice! I don’t play. I need personalities and good players to play on the pitch, otherwise we will not be…
“I didn’t read it or know [what he’s said]. I have had nice, incredible players in my past as a manager at Barcelona, Bayern Munich and here. I could give a good list in terms of their personality and character.
“Most of them have won World Cups, European [Championships], Champions Leagues and leagues. Maybe Evra is right or maybe he’s doing a good quote to come back to Manchester United to work there. Maybe there’s a good chance now.
“Good, Patrice — if we were together I would show you the personality and character of my players right now that we have, absolutely.”
