Former Spurs midfielder hits back at Guardiola’s Champions League comments

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have had an extremely successful season which ended with them winning the Premier League, League Cup, and the FA Cup.

In fact, it was Tottenham’s victory over City in the quarter final of the Champions League that put an end to their hopes of picking up all four major trophies this season.

Guardiola has insisted ahead of the final in Madrid that winning the domestic treble is a more difficult achievement than winning the Champions League (Sky Sports).

However, this comment certainly hasn’t sat well with former Spurs midfielder Jamie O’Hara. The 32-year-old, who graduated through the Tottenham academy, took to social media to remind the Spanish manager the list of opponents that City faced in the League Cup and FA Cup this season.

While O’Hara congratulated Man City on what the have achieved this season, the left-footer said that Guardiola was stupid to claim that getting past the likes of Oxford and Newport was harder than overcoming the likes of Barcelona and Ajax.

O’Hara is certainly right to point out the fact that City have had an unbelievably easy route to the final in both domestic cup competitions. Guardiola will argue that City can only beat what is in front of them.

We believe that while winning the Premier League alone is more difficult than winning the Champions League, if Tottenham were to win it despite not signing a single player in the last two transfer windows, then that will indeed be a be better achievement.
