Guardiola, who has never been afraid to speak his mind, and rarely holds back in his criticism of the media, was questioned on his side’s stellar recent form, with the Citizens having notched an incredible 22 goals in their last 6 games.

The Spanish tactician was keen to point out that his side still have room for improvement, before also suggesting that those in other professions, namely journalists, could also up their game.

‘We can still improve many things. Everybody can always improve. Journalists too.’

Guardiola’s comments come on the same day that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was left baffled by the standard of questions he faced during a press conference in Russia, ahead of his side’s Champions League matchup with Spartak Moscow tomorrow night.
