EPL: I’m most important person at Man City – Guardiola on why he scolds players

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, on Tuesday hit back at criticism of his treatment of Jack Grealish following the goalless draw with Arsenal on Sunday.

At full time, Guardiola could be seen animatedly giving Grealish instructions on the field.

But the Spaniard has faced criticism for his method of addressing players on the pitch after matches, rather than in the dressing room.

When asked about his interaction with Grealish, Guardiola told reporters: “I do it for the cameras, my ego.

“I’m the famous person of the team and I need the cameras to go to sleep with incredible satisfaction.

“I always try to criticise the players there [on the pitch] and let them know how bad they are. Especially when Erling [Haaland] scores three goals, the cameras have to be on me.”

City host Grealish’s former club Aston Villa on Wednesday in their next league fixture.
