Former Super Eagles captain and coach, Sunday Oliseh has disagreed with Pep Guardiola’s assessment that he has failed every other year since winning six trophies with Barcelona in 2009.
The Manchester City manager gave the personal assessment in an interview quoted by Marca.
The Citizens have struggled to hit the heights that saw them win all three domestic titles in England last season. After 21 rounds of games this season, City sit in third place on the EPL table, 14 points behind leaders Liverpool and one point behind second-placed Leicester City.
Guardiola said, “I have failed year after year since I won six trophies in my first season at Barcelona.
“After achieving that, I have failed year after year.
“It is something that I accept, I have no problem with it.”
But Oliseh disagreed in a series of tweets on Sunday.
He said Guardiola has proven himself to be one of the world’s best-ever football managers and should never be described as a “failure”.
The ex-Borussia Dortmund star wrote: “How dare anyone associate the word ‘failure’ to arguably the greatest, most ‘titled’ and delightful to watch coach of the past 100 years is shameful.
“You are judged as a coach by your winning ratio and how you improve players individually and as a team, nothing else! Heads up Pep.”
