Sky Sports’ array of pundits have came out to praise Premier League golden boy – and Manchester City manager – Pep Guardiola, after his team of plucky underdogs thrashed Newcastle United 5-0.
Despite Man City spending more than 1 billion pounds since 2008 to assemble a world class squad, pundits are jumping at the chance to tunnel more praise into Guardiola’s amazing achievements.
Sky Sports pundit Harry Beaver was quoted saying: “What Guardiola has done this season is brilliant, with the limited resources he has had during his tenure at Citeh”.
“I mean, when he thumped West Ham 5-0 at the start of the season I was shocked. Then beating the mighty Watford 8-0?! I thought we were going to have another Leicester!”
Beaver’s co-host, Sid Cophant, chimed in with “Let’s not forget the amazing story back in February, when 2nd place Man City surprised us all by beating 18th place Aston Villa in the League Cup final!”.
Although Liverpool actually won the title this season, Man City fans are rightfully claiming this was a fluke, based on Aymeric Laporte being injured for half of the season. As a result, they’re suggesting the most expensive squad in Europe was ‘lacking in depth’ to make a proper challenge for the title.
