Pep Guardiola hailed by Saints manager ahead of weekend clash

Scott Parker hailed Guardiola as one of the best coaches he ever witnessed.

Man City’s recent defeat to noisy neighbours Manchester United ended their 21-game winning streak in all competitions.

Guardiola in a recent interview downplayed his achievements and believes his success is all due to the extraordinary players he possesses.

The Cityzens face Fulham away on Saturday and manager Scott Parker heaped praises on Pep Guardiola.

“There’s some truth in that (Guardiola’s comments) but I think he’s being very modest,” Parker said.

“He’s an incredible coach, and you only have to look at his team and his set-up, while of course they have very, very good players and they’re privileged in that they can buy them, that team and the way they’re set up, the way they play, the way they move the ball, just everything about them, you can tell just watching them for a few minutes that this a team coached very, very well.

“That doesn’t surprise us because we’re arguably looking at one of the best coaches that I’ve seen.”

“You can’t (switch off against City), their quality all over the pitch in terms of structure, their positional play…they’re a threat in every single moment of the game.
