Watch: A Furious Pep Guardiola Storms Out Of Interview After Win Over Spurs

Despite coming back from two goals down to defeat Spurs 4-2, Pep Guardiola was furious after the game as he walked out of an interview.

In a game where Manchester City were far from their best, they found themselves 2-0 down at half time, with goals from Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal seeing Pep Guardiola's side booed off the pitch.

Just minutes into the second half, Manchester City were level after a quickfire double from Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez. It wasn't long before they took the lead, as Riyad Mahrez put them ahead in the 63rd minute.


While Spurs pushed for an equaliser, Mahrez secured a crucial three points with his second of the game in added time. The win leaves them five points behind leaders Arsenal, who have a game in hand.


Pep Guardiola Furious With His Side In Interview

While it's clear to see Manchester City are far from their best, Pep Guardiola didn't hold back in his assessment of his side after the game.

They have won four out of the last five league titles, and will go down as one of the greatest side's in Premier League history. However, this season has seen some uncharacteristically poor performances have seen them fall behind in the title race.

While it's difficult to quite put your finger on what's gone wrong, Guardiola was furious after the game, and even walked out of the interview.



We are far away from the team that we were. Not in terms of our play, there is many things we did good, but there is many things are terms of competitiveness, what we have to do, there is many things we are far away.

There is nothing from the stomach, from the guts. Today we are lucky, but if we don't change, sooner or later we are again going to drop points. Passion, fire and desire, to want to win from minute one.

It's the same with our spectators and fans, they are silent for 45 minutes. They booed because we are losing, not because we are playing bad. After we score a goal they react, but that's not the point.

It's my duty, my job. I want my fans back, I want my fans here, and my away fans, my away fans are the best. Everyone is relaxed, but the Premier League doesn't wait.

Of course I'm not happy. I don't recognise my team. My team always has passion and desire in everyone."

Incredible to see Guardiola be so open and honest on the difficulties that have disrupted his side. It's rare to see a manager so open and honest particularly when talking about their own fans.
