There seemed to be a rather tense moment between Claudio Bravo and Pep Guardiola after Manchester City’s victory in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening.
Pep Guardiola is now widely accepted as the greatest coach plying his trade in the world of football. However, over the years, several players who have operated under the Spanish boss have spoken out against his style of management with Zlatan Ibrahimovic most notably labelling Guardiola as a ‘spineless coward’.
On Tuesday evening, Guardiola wildly celebrated his team’s latest victory as Manchester City overcame Leicester in a penalty shootout in the Carabao Cup. Running around the pitch, the 46-year-old grabbed each of his players around the head and shoved them into his chest in what could only be described as an assertively dominant or controlling form of congratulations.
However, although most players seemed to be enthusiastic about their manager’s form of praise, Claudio Bravo most certainly did not seem impressed.
The Chilean goalkeeper has spent the majority of this season playing second fiddle to the newly signed Ederson and, having saved the penalty that determined City’s victory on Tuesday evening, Bravo seemed to have absolutely no interest in receiving a pat on the head from his Spanish boss.
