Kevin De Bruyne Told Pep Guardiola, 'You're A Sh*t Manager, You Only Win' In Title Celebrations

Kevin De Bruyne jokingly told Pep Guardiola he is a "shit coach" during Manchester City's Premier League title celebrations.

A 4-1 win away at Brighton on the final day secured back-to-back titles for City, who have now racked up an unbelievable total of 198 points across the last two glorious Premier League campaigns.

And on the pitch at the Amex Stadium after City lifted the title, De Bruyne gave a humorous assessment of Guardiola's managerial abilities to his gaffer.

"You're a s**t coach, you only win," he said in a behind the scenes clip from El Día Después en Movistar+, with the two embracing.

To say he's a "bald fraud" and a "chequebook manager", Pep sure does do a lot of winning.

Following the latest title triumph, Guardiola has now taken 904 (82 per cent) of the 1104 available points available to him since making his managerial debut 11 years ago.

The 48-year old collected 373 points in four seasons at Barcelona before embarking on a new challenge in Germany, where he won three Bundesliga titles in a row with Bayern Munich, racking up 257.

His first season at City was the only time he has finished outside the top three after managing 78 points but the improvement since then has been remarkable, with the Blues now quite possibly the best team in Premier League history.

Trailing Liverpool by seven points when they hosted them in January at the Etihad in Jurgen Klopp's side only league defeat of the season, City won 14 league games in a row following on from their loss to Newcastle later that month.

Guardiola now has A staggering 26 trophies to his name and could still yet add a 27th if City are able to secure victory over Watford in the FA Cup final.

What's more, another Wembley win for City will see them become the first English team to win a domestic treble.
