Freudian slide tackle: Pep Guardiola already thinks he’s managing Bayern Munich

New, comments

There are slips of the tongue, and then there is Pep Guardiola forgetting he is not (yet?) managing Bayern Munich instead of Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola is fondly remembered in Munich. He has remained a friend of the club, he still owns an apartment in town, and of course he is one of the top targets for Bayern Munich’s newly vacant head coaching position.

And Pep knows it!

In fact, Bayern is apparently so much on his mind lately that Guardiola literally forgot in the middle of a Manchester City press conference that he was coaching City, not Bayern Munich. Check it out for yourself:

He begins by talking about Rodri, who was also linked to Bayern Munich:

Always he help us, you know in these kind of situations. I think he adjust and suit perfect for this league. Honestly.

...And I think Bayern Munich — ai ai [facepalm]. Man City bought... uh... Bayern Munich? What the fuck! Man City... I don’t know what I thought.

We know, Pep: you’re obviously already planning to bolt for Bayern and bring Rodri with you on a blockbuster deal, right? That’s how the rumor mill grinds the grist, right?
