Well, that's unfortunate. As an aside, I don't think he would make a good international manager, unless he took over a country with a deep pool of talent to choose from. He needs players to match his system, and if he can't change fullbacks and CBs until he finds the right ones, he won't be as successful.
Still wouldn't rule out him leaving if they won the CL but he seems pretty relaxed at City at the moment.
Think to get him out the door you need a real top class manager with a quality team that can sustain the pressure on him and break him like Mourinho did in Spain. I think had Klopp and Liverpool pushed them hard again last season we might have seen some cracks emerging as Pep likes to have everything his own way.
Pep had a dig at the City fans for not turning up to CL game, the supporters club spokesman had a dig back saying that some fans cannot afford to go/can’t make it on a Wednesday evening. Now Pep is saying he’s not apologising.
What Pep fails to realise is they don’t have enough loyal fans to always fill the stadium.
Pep is a proper odd ball isn't he I mean seriously the club should have sorted a phone call between Pep and the supporters association to discuss this rather than air it out in public. He should have shut down the topic today and moved on from it instead it's now coming across like a war between him and the fans.
It's obvious why City don't always sell out they don't have a massive fan base that will snap up tickets when the regulars aren't able to go. City fans don't all get european and cup games on the season ticket so they are going to pick and chose what games they go to because they can it's not like Utd or Liverpool where you need to buy every ticket to get the credits for aways/final tickets. It's simple supply and demand.
The guy from the supporters association is right to come out and defend the fans as Pep's comments weren't nice for the fans to hear as it gives ammunition to fans of other clubs to attack them. As he said City sell out pretty much every home league game but crowds always drop mid week as people either can't afford the extra cost of tickets or have work commitments they can't get to the games for. City don't have enough people who step in to plug gaps.
Also, the group stage for the best side is a bit of a procession if you can pick and chose what games to go to my guess is most fans will buy the ticket for PSG and skip the other two games to save a bit of money.
To be honest this is a topic that all fans could benefit from some solidarity on as clubs have taken the p*ss out of all fans for a very long time now and one reason they can is fans don't work together on these issues.
City could fill that ground every game easily drop the prices and if needs be give the tickets to local schools.
