Pep Guardiola joked about calling Tottenham Hotspur ‘the Harry Kane team’ after losing to the Lilywhites in north London on Sunday.


The Man City caused quite a bit of controversy in 2017 when he labelled Tottenham ‘the Harry Kane team’, with then-Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino saying the comment was ‘sad’ and ‘unnecessary’.

Nearly six years on, Kane scored the winner in Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Man City on Sunday evening, becoming the club’s all-time top goalscorer in the process.

Speaking after the game, Guardiola joked about his previous comments and congratulated Kane on his achievement: “I’m not going to say the Harry Kane team otherwise Pochettino will be grumpy with me and I don’t want it.

“On behalf of Man City I can say congrats on this incredible milestone. He’s an exceptional player.”

Guardiola also took the time to assess his team’s performance in the defeat – a third consecutive away defeat in the Premier League:

“We started really well in the first 15 minutes until the goal we conceded. After that we played a good first half, the second half was not as good. There were too many interruptions and we cannot control. We had our chances against a team that defend very well.

“They defend with nine players really well. The squad is fantastic. I think we always play really well against them but for whatever reason we cannot seem to win or score goals.”
