Reporter Kim Dong-ho = Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola explained his relationship with Joao Cancelo.
Just before the winter transfer market closed in January, a ‘super-large’ deal was concluded. Manchester City fullback Cancelo has moved to Bayern Munich on loan. Everyone is surprised by the unexpected ‘surprise’ transfer. However, looking at the background of this transfer, on the other hand, it gave a considerable ‘shock’. Many experts claim that Cancelo had a feud with manager Guardiola.
In fact, Cancellu’s position has rapidly decreased recently. He was key enough to start in a row after the opening, but he did not receive a chance after the season, which was suspended for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, resumed. From the end of December until recently, while Manchester City played 10 official games, he played 5 games, going back and forth between selection and substitution, and in terms of playing time, it is only 55.6 minutes. In particular, only the bench has heated up in the last three games in a row.
In the end, Cancelo expressed dissatisfaction with playing time and had an argument with manager Guardiola. When he crossed the river of no return, Cancelo also made up his mind to leave, and after negotiating with Bayern Munich in a ‘one-shot’, the lease transfer was confirmed.
However, rumors of a feud between the two sides are evolving. First of all, Cancelo said at the press conference after joining Munich, “I haven’t been given the opportunity to play properly in the past few weeks. But there is nothing wrong with Pep’s relationship with me.” “Bayern Munich is one of the best teams in the world. It’s a great motivator. This team challenges the championship trophy every year. I was driven by a thirst for success, and I will do my best for Munich.” 슬롯사이트
Guardiola also said, “Every player has their own personality. Cancelo is a player who always wants to play. He wants to play every game and I hope he can play often in Munich. I won’t say anything bad about him. Everyone is well aware of his professionalism, passion, love for football, and skills.”
Meanwhile, Cancelo showed off his strength by recording one assist with a cross in the round of 16 of the DFB Pokal against Mainz, which was his debut match. It is known that Munich signed a contract in the form of paying only a weekly wage after renting Cancelu from Man City for free.
