​Gundogan recalls furious Guardiola rant prior to Man City final day win


Manchester City star Ilkay Gundogan has spoken about his manager Pep Guardiola's ire during their final game of the Premier League last term.

City had to secure a win against Aston Villa to defend their Premier League crown against Liverpool.

However, they were trailing with 14 minutes of the game remaining, before scoring three unanswered goals to secure the title

"We are all competitive, we all want to play and I remember the week before I hadn't started the West Ham game so I was quite confident in starting and then the moment I found out I wasn't starting I was a bit frustrated and angry," Gundogan said at the premiere of the documentary 'Together: Champions Again!'

"I still tried to be focused and support the guys that were starting and I think I put that frustration a little bit into the game.

"Things didn't start so well when I got subbed on as we were 10 seconds in and we conceded the second goal and then to be honest, as a professional football player you always try to do your best, do the simple things.

"We scored the first goal and luckily that happened, then in ten minutes we scored the three goals. Everything happened so quickly, it's still difficult for me to analyse as it all happened so quickly."
