Mexico City /
After what Zlatan Ibrahimovic affirm that “Pep’s ego” could be so great as to prevent him from Erling Haland prosper in the Manchester City, Guardiola he exploded and responded sarcastically against the Swede.
“Is Guardiola capable of improving it? That depends on Guardiola’s ego, whether he allows himself to be bigger than Haaland or not. He did not allow me or the others to be so great (in Barcelona)”, was what Zlatan said this week.
This is how Guardiola was questioned about those words of Ibrahimovic, whom he directed with the Catalans, in a successful era for the Blaugranas.
“You’re right, you’re absolutely right. In this club, in this team, my ego is beyond any other person, of each player.”
“I don’t like it when Erling scores three goals and all the lights are on him. I’m so jealous. Honestly, I’m so jealous. I told him ‘Erling, please, no more goals, otherwise The Sun and Daily Mail won’t talk about me, and only me. He is right, he knows me perfectly. Maybe (Ibrahimovic) can write another book”, answered Pep.
Ibrahimovic had complained in his book
Before the words against Pep during this week, Ibrahimovic had already criticized Guardiola in a book, assuring that he mistreated him at Barcelona; he mentions that the DT left the room every time he entered.
