- Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has angrily attacked Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola
- Pochettino expressed his annoyance following the comments Guardiola was said to have made
- Guardiola was reported to have labelled Spurs 'Harry Kane team' after the tough victory against Huddersfield
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly blasted Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola as 'sad' and a 'disrespectful' Premier League coach.
This comes after the Manchester City handler was reported to have labelled Tottenham who were runners-up last season as a team that cannot do without Englishman Harry Kane.
Guardiola was said to have made the comments 'Harry Kane team' after the striker netted a brace for Spurs in a 4-0 away win at Huddersfield.
Pochettino has now reacted angrily to the comments made by the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich gaffer.
"But what he said was disrespectful to many. It did not affect me but was very disrespectful for many people.
"Guardiola was part of the big success at Barcelona with Messi at his best and I never said it was the Lionel Messi team.
“I think many people took those words as very disrespectful for the club and for many players here, and it is a strange situation.
“That is my opinion like I respect his opinion and are the players more or less motivated now? I think it’s the same,'' Pochettino was quoted to have said.
