Manchester City’s coach, Pep Guardiola, chuckles dismissively when asked about the possibility of Manchester United challenging for the title.
Pep Guardiola laughed at a question suggesting that Manchester United could dethrone Manchester City as Premier League champions, but he named two clubs he believes have what it takes.
The 51-year-old led the Cityzens to an unprecedented treble last season, winning the FA Cup, Premier League, and Champions League.
Their league title defence has begun in full force, as they have won all five EPL matches so far this season, and they start their charge to retain the UCL title tomorrow when they host Red Star Belgrade.
Guardiola dismisses Manchester United as a challenge
In the pre-match press conference for their Tuesday night clash against the Czech Republic team, the Spanish coach was questioned about the teams he thought posed a threat to them winning the Premier League for the fourth consecutive season.
The former Barcelona coach went on to name Arsenal and Liverpool, but when asked if he thought of Manchester United similarly, he chuckled in a dismissive way.
