João Cancelo has been the name that is most on the lips of all sports media and on social networks linked to the world of football, and not precisely because of the current good level and performance that he has today as a player for the Barcelona Football Club, but because of some striking and loud statements that were aimed at his former coach at Manchester City , Pep Guardiola.

It must be remembered that the Portuguese player was loaned to the Barcelona Football Club and he lit up social networks. and the media with an analysis of what his stay at Manchester City in the English Premier League was like, where he had to be directed by a culé legend like Guardiola. In an interview with A BOLA, the full-back acknowledged that he does not have good memories of his days on the Etihad Stadium playing field since his relationship with the coach was what led to his early departure. of the English club.

Cancelo was not afraid to speak loudly and clearly about Guardiola

I think he was ungrateful to me, because I was a very important player in the years I was there.. I never failed in my commitment to the club, to the fans and I always gave my all,” were his first words in reference to his situation at the club and with Guardiola in charge. And he immediately referred to the words that the technical director had made some time ago in relation to his situation in the United Kingdom.

“He is not happy with the present of Aké and Rico Lewis,” the former technical director of Barcelona and Bayern Munich had said a few months ago.. And the defender’s response was felt and in what way: “Lies were told! I have never been a bad partner for them and you can ask Aké or Rico. I don’t have any superiority or inferiority complex towards them, but that is the coach’s opinion. I remember a time when I was mugged and attacked; and the next day he was playing at the Emirates against Arsenal. These are things that are not forgotten, I left my wife and daughter alone at home, terrified. People will only remember this because Mr. Guardiola has much more strength than me when he says something and I prefer to keep it to myself.”

These statements seem to assume that the return of the Portuguese full-back is not a viable option. for himself and who, on the contrary, wants to prolong his stay at the Catalan club where he has previously stated that he feels very good: “My whole family is from Benfica, but I have always admired Barcelona. All my idols played here, I like the way they look at young people, they have a gaming culture that I love.”

When analyzing his two loans, first to Bayern Munich and then to Barcelona, ​​Cancelo explained loudly and clearly what related to this issue:

“Certain things forced me to go on loan to Bayern Munich last year. I do not regret, even if City won the Champions League. I think I made the right decision, that I went to a club that really wanted me, even before renewing my contract. It was a club that gave me a lot in the six months I was there. I dealt with great players and the team is spectacular. Then I came here, they lowered my salary and it didn’t bother me in the least. It was the third time I want to come to Barcelona and I am finally here,” he concluded.

Will Cancelo continue in Barcelona?

Barcelona will have to pay a sum close to 40 million euros that imposes the termination clause, this in the supposed case that the managers and coaching staff wish to keep the player in their ranks.
