Pep Guardiola Says People Have a Problem With Him Because He’s Won So Many Titles

Pep Guardiola Says People Have a Problem With Him Because He’s Won So Many Titles

Pep Guardiola is in the final furlong of his reign at Bayern Munich, as he prepares himself for life at the Etihad next season.

But with his Bayern team 1-0 down to Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals of the Champions League, the former Barcelona boss has been heavily scrutinised in recent weeks.

However, Guardiola has shrugged off his doubters and claims people only have a problem with him because he has been so successful during his career.

Guardiola was blasted for leaving Thomas Muller on the bench for the first leg against Atleti and has been harassed all week to see whether he will once again pull the World Cup winner from his starting line-up.

Yet, the 45-year-old was unwilling to give anything away during his press conference, as per Marca:

“The problem people have with me is that I’ve won so many titles. An hour before the game you’ll see who will start,” Guardiola said.

“We have to interpret each game scenario and play according to our philosophy. In Madrid, we didn’t lose because Muller didn’t start and his presence isn’t the only thing that will determine Tuesday’s outcome.”

Bayern host Atleti in the second-leg tonight at the Allianz Arena, with all eyes firmly on Guardiola to see whether he can once again produce the goods on the grandest stage.
