Pep Guardiola Admits He Has a Major Soft Spot For Tottenham

Pep Guardiola Admits He Has a Major Soft Spot For Tottenham

Pep Guardiola‘s Manchester City side are gearing up to take on Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend, but it’s difficult to know which team the Spanish coach will enjoy watching more.

City host Spurs in the midst of a mini crisis following last weekend’s 4-0 defeat to Everton, which left the club fifth in the Premier League and outside of the Champions League qualification places.

Conversely, the side from north London are flying at the moment, having scored a whopping 10 goals in their last three league matches.

But speaking to the media ahead of the fixture, Guardiola didn’t seem worried about the prospect of facing Mauricio Pochettino’s men, but instead admitted his affection for their style of play.

Speaking via the Evening Standard, he said: “They are a good team, [and have been for] three or two years in a row.

“They are really playing good. As a fan of football, I love to see them.

“We have already said goodbye to the title. It is not going to depend on what happens tomorrow.”

City go into the game 10 points off leaders Chelsea, so Guadiola is probably correct when he writes off their title chances – but should he admit to being such a fan of Tottenham?

What do you think?
