Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola has praised his players for allegedly helping him to lose the “Fraudiola” tag, a dig which was aimed at him in his debut season in England.
Recall that Pep Guardiola failed to win any trophy in his debut season at the Etihad Stadium and his tactics were questioned.
Guardiola has since won back-to-back English Premier League titles with Manchester City and steered the club to an unprecedented domestic treble last season.
“They gave me all the prestige I have in England, when the first season when it was Fraud Guardiola, Fraudiola.
“This kind of game here in England – it’s not possible to play because you need to have tackles and you have to play like that – these players gave me the prestige that I have.
“And now all around the world people say how good a manager I am – it’s for them, not for me,” he said at a news conference on Monday.
