Video: Pep Guardiola Absolutely Furious with John Stones Over How Long it Takes Him to get Stripped

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola showed a glimpse of his red-hot temper this evening when he confronted John Stones in the Etihad home dugout.

Despite several high-profile injuries to defenders, Stones was left out of the starting line-up for City’s Champions League tie with Serie A newcomers Atalanta tonight, but the £50 million centre-back was soon needed as a substitute.

Brazilian holding midfielder Fernandinho was deployed at the centre of defence, but when £60 million summer signing Rodri was forced off just before half-time with a hamstring injury, Pep turned to Stones – only to discover the England international wasn’t quite ready:

The clip might seem pretty insignificant to some, but we reckon it’s a stark reminder of just how much of a perfectionist Guardiola is, and how easily he can lose his temper when things aren’t going his way.

What do you think of the clip, and how far will City go in this season’s Champions League campaign?
