I never called Barca the Messi team - Pochettino slams Guardiola's Kane comments

I never called Barca the Messi team - Pochettino slams Guardiola's Kane comments

He added: "I know Pep very well and when he is excited after an awesome victory against Chelsea sometimes he struggles to keep his position and be a gentleman".

Guardiola regularly praised a host of Tottenham players last season and sanctioned a move in the region of £50million to secure Spurs' England full-back Kyle Walker during the transfer window.

"I think Harry Kane is an outstanding player", he said in his pre-match press conference on Friday.

The comment did not go down well with Maurcio Pochettino, who retaliated by saying he did not call Guardiola's all-conquering Barcelona the "Messi team".

"The reality was it was very disrespectful and it is hard to understand", stated Pochettino when asked about Guardiola's comments on his team. But I think many people took those words as very disrespectful for the club, and for many players that are here I think it's a odd situation. If you're a manager you must show more [respect], no? "It was disrespectful for many", Pochettino said. To be above this type of comment. He hasn't called me yet. "I am sure I will reply".

"Of course [I will talk to Guardiola]".

"Then there are big teams, like us, who sign when we can and who we can". I have a lot of friends, Mikel Arteta, Lorenzo Buenaventura, Eduardo Mauri.

"It's a sad comment".

Guardiola is also making up for lost time in a way this season, and after a disappointing first term in English football, September reminded the world of his managerial prowess in a major way. "Why that comment? It didn't help him, it's not a good thing for anyone".
