Netflix documentary to reveal ‘all-time rant’ from Pep Guardiola during Manchester City defeat in 2023



| Last Updated:


The highly-anticipated Netflix documentary showing a behind-the-scenes look into Manchester City’s Treble season will also reveal an ‘all-time rant’ from Pep Guardiola.

City made history during the previous campaign by becoming just the second time in English football history to claim the Premier League title alongside an FA Cup victory and success in the UEFA Champions League.

That followed on from Manchester United’s triumph back in 1999, with City defeating Erik ten Hag’s edition of the Old Trafford squad en route to their Treble success through an FA Cup final win at Wembley Stadium – one week prior to their European night in Istanbul.

In a season that will undoubtedly go down in history, and with behind-the-scenes insight set to be unveiled to audiences around the world on April 2, one minor dampener on the season was Manchester City’s defeat to Southampton in the Carabao Cup.

The abysmal performance on the south coast in early 2023 sparked an outpouring of anger from manager Pep Guardiola with regards to the manner in which his side lost – and that public showing of frustration stretched to great heights behind-the-scenes.

That is according to the information of MailSport’s Jack Gaughan, writing in the latest edition of his Man City Notebook, who reveals that sources have now suggested that a short clip in the Netflix trailer for the documentary – where Pep Guardiola sarcastically says ‘WOW’ – is only a ‘small segment’ of an ‘all-time rant’ that has made it into the episode.

City sustained a similarly poor performance in this season’s competition, crashing out to Newcastle United in the third round of the competition and opening the path for Liverpool to become eventual victors earlier this year.

That loss in the north-east had no impact on Manchester City’s season as a whole however, with Pep Guardiola and his Treble winners continuing to challenge for a repeat of last season’s remarkable success.

City travel to Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend, while a meeting with Arsenal in the top-flight awaits at the end of the month, with an FA Cup quarter-final meeting with Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium merged between the two contests.
