What strikes me is that the players who have been coached by both Guardiola and Mourinho (Ibra, Eto'o) have said similar things about Guardiola.
However, I agree with you guys. These comments were ridiculous and selfish. Some are downright stupid, such as the fact that he didn't prove anything when he went there. He made Barcelona the best they've ever been in their history. Eto'o would not have enjoyed that treble without him. As for saying he wasn't a great player... what does that have to do with anything? His current coach was never a great player either.
For every ex-Barca player who has criticised him there are 10 others who love Guardiola. Then there are the millions of Barca and Bayern fans who love him as well, and of course the current Bayern players too. Perhaps these players should consider the possibility that they were the ones who instigated such an attitude towards them. Guardiola, like LVG, tolerates no BS. The players need to understand their role as players and have respect for his role as coach. We all know Ibra doesn't do that, and if Eto'o is willing to fight with someone over a shirt number, then I say he doesn't either. You're not the one calling the shots, Eto'o.
No player was ever bigger than the club, and no player will ever be. These players need to understand that. Guardiola is great because he was not afraid to attack players like Ibra and Eto'o because of this regardless of how much of a big name they are.
@Borusse: I am curious to read your opinion on the matter, as an objective fan whose team has never been associated with Guardiola in any way.
