Dietmar Hamann claims “any other manager would be in huge bother” at Manchester City however Pep Guardiola has actually been saved by “Barcelona history in the boardroom”.

The Citizens just won the League Cup last season after they were dumped out of the Champions League at the quarter-final phases and were beaten to the Premier League title by a rampant Liverpool side.

Nevertheless, it is their record in the Champions League that will be most worrying for the City hierarchy, with Guardiola yet to discover a way past the quarter-finals in his 4 seasons at the club.

” If you look at their record in the Champions League, any other supervisor would’ve remained in huge trouble,” Hamann talkSPORT

” Undoubtedly he’s got some Barcelona history in the boardroom and maybe that’s why he’s still there.

” He didn’t reach a last with Bayern Munich or Guy City– and if you take a look at the teams who did, they don’t have the very same funds.

” It’s merely not good enough. If you look at the groups who beat them, I simply wonder what needs to take place for them to make a change.

” We do not like supervisors getting sacked, however I think any other supervisor would remain in huge bother.”

And Hamann has suggested that a team can only tolerate Guardiola’s high needs for so long, he included: “Historically, he was at Munich for three years and he enhanced the team, but the gamers were happy when he left due to the fact that he was so requiring.

” I believe a manager like Guardiola can’t be at a club for more than four or 5 years.

” He’s done that at Male City and if you see the players they generate, there is no connection and I do not see them enhancing enough with the cash they’ve spent.

” I think they’ve peaked under Guardiola, I do not see them winning the Premier League or the Champions League in the next few years.”

So Patrick Bamford got us thinking of definitely random Premier League hat-trick goalscorers. Justice for “busy” Kevin Lisbie.
