Manchester United news says the Veteran striker of Manchester United Ibrahimovic Slammed the Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola for benched him out during their Barcelona days for questioning him over the Argentine star Messi.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic called Pep Guardiola the most immature coach he has worked under in his career so far.
In the year of 2009-10, the Swedish joined the Catalan side Barcelona from the Serie A giants Inter Milan and he played his football under Guardiola for one year and then he moved back to Italy with Milan.
In his tenure with Barcelona Ibrahimovic scored 16 goals for them in his 29 appearances under Pep Guardiola.
At that time Ibrahimovic teamed up with the players like Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Xavi and Thierry Henry but the Spanish tactician Pep Guardiola spoiled his party at Barcelona.
Manchester United news avouches that In the recent past Manchester United lost against Manchester City by 2-1 goals and after the match, Ibrahimovic said: “I’d scored a lot of goals in my first six months and we won two Super Cups. The first six months were perfect.”
Ibrahimovic says that in his time at Barcelona he had a word with Guardiola to change his tactics after his tactics were only expanding Messi’s game at Barcelona.
He added: “After that, we changed system and tactics, and it wasn’t good for me, so the club told me to talk to Guardiola.
“And I told Guardiola that he’d sacrificed the other players for Messi. He told me he understood me.
“After that, he put me on the bench for the next game, the one after that and the one after that.
“And I thought, ‘he’s solved the problem very well I see!’ After that, he didn’t talk to me or even look at me.
“I’d walk into a room and he’d walk out. I’d go to meet him and he’d go somewhere else. I understood that there was something beyond football.”
And that was the final straw and his issue with Guardiola began from there.
