Soccer fans have condemned Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola for his untoward comments made to a journalist during a press conference.

Guardiola’s Manchester City side had earlier won a hard-fought game against Brentford at the Etihad stadium on Tuesday, courtesy of a late Erling Haaland goal in the second half which saw them secure all three points at full-time.

In the press conference held after Man City’s 1-0 win over Brentford in the Premier League, the 53-year-old Spanish manager was discussing the dynamics of the game and how his Man City players fared, when he was abruptly asked a surprising question by a reporter, which was captured on live video footage.

Pep Guardiola responded to journalist’s question with boastful comments

After the narrow victory at the Etihad stadium, Pep Guardiola was quizzed by a reporter who asked him the question, “What’s wrong with being a journalist?”.

And to which Guardiola responded:

“Oh, I’m a manager. My life is better than yours, so that’s why I wanna be manager and don’t wanna be journalist. Absolutely…”

Following his response to the journalist’s question on the night, a volcano of criticisms and condemnations has since erupted on social media with many soccer fans blasting the 53-year-old for comments they believe was “arrogant” and “slanderous”.
