It seems that Charlie Nicholas isn’t an easy man to please.
The Sky Sports pundit has questioned the timing of Manchester City, who today announced that Pep Guardiola will replace current boss Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season.
Manchester City are currently second in the Premier League and retain hopes of lifting what would be a historic quadruple this season.
However, that hasn’t stopped the City board from moving for Guardiola, who announced he would be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the current campaign several weeks ago.
Yet ex-Arsenal forward Charlie Nicholas believes it is a “strange decision” to announce alterations to the coaching staff half-way through the current season.
Nicholas went on to defend Pellegrini’s record at the Etihad, describing how the Chilean has been a wonderful coach and has got the players playing an exciting brand of football.
The 54-year-old added that this announcement could actually derail Pellegrini’s players’ challenge for honours with Arsenal, Leicester and Tottenham all still in the hunt for the title:

Do you agree with Nicholas?
