After the 5-0 demolition of Sporting on Tuesday evening in the Champions League, the football world was once again lauding Pep Guardiola’s tactical acumen.

That hasn’t stopped talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan labelling the Catalan a ‘chequebook manager’ who has cost his club £667,000 per point won during his tenure.
? “Every single PL point won by Pep has cost Man City £667,000.”
? “Every point won by Liverpool under Klopp has cost £243,000.”
? “So Pep’s spent 3 times as much as Klopp! Pep’s a chequebook boss!”
