Champions League final hits and misses: Pep Guardiola guilty of  over-thinking as Man City lose to Chelsea? | Football News | Sky Sports

 

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has been told to apologize to every member of his squad after losing the Champions League final to Chelsea.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Jamie O’Hara, has said Guardiola displayed “arrogance” in his team selection for the game in Porto.

City lost 1-0 in their first European final, thanks to Kai Havertz’s 42nd minute strike.

Guardiola, who has been lauded for evolving City’s style this season, was accused of overcomplicating his selection on the big stage by pundits and supporters alike.

“I couldn’t believe what I was watching.

“It’s one of the worst performances I’ve seen from Manchester City in a long time. Bottle jobs. And an absolute disaster of a team selection from Pep Guardiola.

“I cannot believe he got it so wrong in such a big moment.

“Chelsea were brilliant, they were solid, they were organised. They were all over Man City in the first-half. They had their number.

“Guardiola got it so wrong with the team selection with no holding midfielder. If Timo Werner could shoot, it would have been 3-0 at half-time. They were all over them.

“I couldn’t believe what I was watching. It was a disgrace from Pep Guardiola,” O’Hara told TalkSPORT.
