Wigan Athletic v Manchester City - The Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round
A livid Guardiola

What makes Pep Guardiola so likeable? Apart from the fact that he churned out a dream Barcelona team that won six trophies in a year, Pep Guardiola is particularly praised for Shaolin Monk tendency of being calm in most cases.

But is he? Is the Catalan really as calm as people think he is? Is he the oozing epitome of the calmness exuded by a Yogi meditating on the peak of Everest? At times, you might be forgiven for thinking that he is, because the truth is that he isn’t.

And here are 5 instances that prove it…


#5 Oppressed tempest


While the subheading might sound weird, Pep Guardiola’s post-match interview after Manchester City’s 2-1 win against Burnley at the Etihad last season is weirder—which is why it perfectly fits with how the former Bayern manager spoke.

It was as though he was oppressing the anger—the tempest—within him so that it doesn’t erupt like a volcano and consume everything that it touches. The reason for the visionary tactician’s rage was that Fernandinho was red-carded in that game, a decision that really didn’t go down well with him.

As you can see, he was… he was… just weird. Answering every question sparsely, the anger within him was just increasing as the interview progressed. His nose was as red as a stoner’s eyes, which was a dead giveaway of the inferno boiling within him.
