Pep Guardiola gets destroyed on Twitter after Man City struggle to see off Bournemouth

It’s fair to say that a lot of non-Manchester City supporters aren’t impressed with Pep Guardiola, particularly after Saturday’s win over Bournemouth.

Aside from the fact that they didn’t rate his side’s performance on the pitch as they eventually saw off the Cherries thanks to a 97th-minute winner from Raheem Sterling, it was his antics on the sidelines that also annoyed many as he continually berated and harassed the fourth official.

Some, most probably Man Utd fans, insisted that if it was Jose Mourinho, the FA would have hit the Man Utd boss with a touchline ban and a fine already, while others labelled Guardiola ‘a fraud’ as his side didn’t always look too convincing despite spending big money this past summer.

It will likely take some time for this side to gel and really hit top form, but it’s clear in an unforgiving and impatient league such as the Premier League, City’s rivals aren’t going to give them any time to impress.

The pressure is certainly on Guardiola this year to deliver silverware after being left empty-handed last season, and especially with that spending in mind, he can’t afford another disappointing campaign.
