This happened during a press conference where he got a fresh question about Erling Haaland, Pep Guardiola wasn’t happy about it.
Pep Guardiola tends to get very serious when journalists get repetitive with questions, especially right now with Erling Haaland. Just yesterday, he already hinted that Manchester City won’t go after a striker in the transfer window. But journalists keep talking about his club going after the Norway international. In a brief moment, Pep finally snapped against the journalist who asked him the question.
There is no way Pep Guardiola will reveal any information about Manchester City’s targets for the summer transfer window. The Catalan manager likes to keep this information close to his vest, as he should. If he gave any hints on what the club is trying to do, it could jeopardize their chances of getting any new player. Even though there are rumors about City trying to sign Haaland, chances are they won’t even try.
Pep snaps against the press.
Goal reported Pep Guardiola’s full rant after getting the latest question about trying to sign Erling Haaland: “You understand I’m not going to talk about any names, about other players at other clubs,” he told reporters. “It would not be polite for Borussia Dortmund and for Haaland. Absolutely, it’s not my business.
“I have two months with these players that we have here, they deserve as much respect from their manager to [not] talk about another player when we have two months ahead, important ones with what we have done so far. So, if I’m a player and the manager speaks of other players I’d say: ‘What the f*ck are you doing?’. We are here to do what we have to do right now. I never comment, never in five years I speak about another player from another club. Never, never.”
