Football fans worldwide are baffled by Guardiola’s uncalled-for reason for Manchester City’s 1-0 defeat to Spurs.
Guardiola seemingly rubbed the fans the wrong way when he bizarrely brought up the journey from Manchester to London away games.
“Coming from Manchester to London, it’s like going to northern Europe,” Guardiola said.
“It’s 4 hours, 20 minutes – 4 and a half hours to get to a hotel. It’s so exhausting, I’m sorry. I’m sorry.”
Tottenham clinched the win when Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game, making history by becoming Spurs’ record goal scorer after surpassing Jimmy Greaves‘ tally of 266.
Rodrigo Hernandez gave a cheap pass and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg seized on the opportunity, before feeding Kane, who slotted past Ederson.
City have played five times at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and lost every single fixture, failing to score in all of their trips in a dismal run.
They were below par yet again and have now tasted defeat in their last three away games, failing to take advantage of Arsenal’s surprise defeat to Everton a day before.
Fans reacted to his flimsy excuse comparing him to Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp who is known as the coach with the most outlandish excuses.
One commented: “P*** poor excuse. Sounds like Klopp. We have had 9 days and they’ll have traveled 1st class on the train.”
“He’s turning into Klopp.” Another wrote
A third suggested: “If Klopp said this we’d never hear the end of it.”
City will be looking to get back to winning ways next week when they host Aston Villa, just days before a crucial top of the table clash with leaders Arsenal.
