Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola is in the headlines for some petty reasons.

Shortly after his side lost to Chelsea, 3-1 on Saturday, three Chelsea players; Willian, César Azpilicueta and Cesc Fàbregas approcahed the Spaniard for a handshake but he completely ignored them and that elicited strong reactions amongst football fans.

While it might have a lot to do with Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho‘s suspension following their tackles on David Luiz and Cesc Fabregas, Spanish outlet, Marca claims there’s more to the ex Bayern Munich coach’s actions.

Their explanation below:

“Although publicly there has been no real hint of animosity, Fabregas’ Barcelona return when Guardiola was on the bench was not at the request of the tactician, who had no real interest in seeing him return to the Camp Nou. Fabregas’ move back to the Blaugrana largely came about as a result of Tito Vilanova’s insistence and pressure from key dressing room figures such as Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi, who are close friends with the ex-Arsenal man. Their coexistence in the dressing room was far from ideal and they did not part on the best of terms, with Fabregas going on to join Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea in 2014 doing little to improve their relationship.”

 

Weren’t 3 players snubbed?
