Adrian Durham says Pep Guardiola is ‘the architect of his own downfall’ after another Manchester City Champions League exit

Adrian Durham has torn into ‘arrogant’ Pep Guardiola following Manchester City’s stunning Champions League defeat to Tottenham.

The Drivetime host says the Spaniard is ‘the architect of his own downfall’ and believes his dreadful game management is the reason why City have not made any progress in Europe since he took charge.

Pep Guardiola is one of football’s most successful managers, but has been labelled a fraud by some fans in recent years

Guardiola’s side were dumped out of the Champions League by Premier League rivals Tottenahm on Wednesday on away goals, after an outrageous second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

It’s the third straight season they have failed to progress past the quarter-final stage – crashing out to Monaco and Liverpool in his first two seasons.

The defeat to Spurs had led the reemergence of ‘Fraudiola’ jibes from rival fans, over his failure to produce in Europe since his spell in charge of Barcelona, despite millions at his disposal at Bayern Munich and Man City.
