Manchester City Fan Says He Wants Pep Guardiola 'Out' And To Get Jose Mourinho In
Pep Guardiola had a torrid day at Anfield on Sunday and one Manchester City fan thinks that should be the end of his time at the club, and wants to replace him with Jose Mourinho!
City lost 3-1 to Liverpool to fall nine points behind the undefeated league leaders and Guardiola's choice of defence was being questioned, with £60 million Joao Cancelo sat on the bench, whilst he was also criticised for his post match sarcastic hand shake with referee Michael Oliver.
One fan has decided that he's 'done with Pep' and called into talkSPORT to champion Mikel Arteta taking over, before adding that he'd also like Jose Mourinho to be in charge:
"I'm done with Pep now!" :rage:- talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) November 10, 2019
"Let Arteta take the job or bring José Mourinho in, I'd take Mourinho." :eyes:
"Get Pep out and let's move on." :fire:

There's so many issues with this 'fans' suggestion that it's almost impossible to know where to start.
First of all the caller thinks that City need to get a 'young man' in the job, which would make Arteta, who is currently Guardiola's assistant, the prime candidate but Mourinho is eight years older than his former rival.
Next up on the list of complaints is the fan's idea that Pep is only a 'three year' manager. Whilst the former Barcelona boss has proved to be quite a short term appointment he's nothing on Mourinho.
The Spaniard was Barca manager four seasons before believing his message was no longer getting through to the players and left with 'only' the Copa del Rey in his final season.
At Bayern Munich the 48-year-old lasted three years and won the league title in all three, finishing his time in Germany with the treble, before moving to City.
He's already in his fourth season at the Etihad, whilst Mourinho has never completed four full seasons at a club, only entering the fourth season during his first spell at Chelsea but being sacked in September.
Undoubtedly City haven't had the start to the season that everyone would have been expecting, already losing three games, and Guardiola didn't have his best day on Sunday but surely he's far from 'done.'
Does anyone think Mourinho would make a good replacement at the Etihad?
