  • I hope haters can see that nobody knows it all. Guardiola with all his tactics and intelligent of the game got let down by his own substitute and there conceded to late goals in winning position and altimately dumbed out of the competition in extra time. That is football for. I remember a certain coach team conceded a dying minute free kick by Riyad Mahrez in a semi final of Afcons and the same team eventually won the competition till today haters will not stop blaming the coach for the loss hmmmmn.. imagine the way Man city lost the team, if a coach there lose in that circumstances in Nigeria hmmm that coach head will be asked for I trust my naiga fans lol…
