Guardiola, like many of his fellow top managers, has shown on many previous occasions just how much the pressures of football can impact him, but it appears as though Pep’s outlook has now changed.
You have to respect a brutally honest response like this, Guardiola added that the worst thing that can happen is that he’s sacked, he hinted that football is the most significant insignificant thing in life.
