Pep Guardiola sends warning to Man United ahead of derby

Pep Guardiola claims United cannot emulate domination of Ferguson years.

Noisy neighbours Manchester United have struggled for dominance in the top-flight and European competitions since Sir Alex Ferguson left his role as the manager.

But since Pep Guardiola’s arrival at the Etihad Stadium back in 2016, Manchester City have lifted the Premier League trophy in five of the last six campaigns.

Sir Alex Ferguson never considered Man City as their main rivals as he won 25 and lost 11 of his 45 derbies during a dominant spell for the Red Devils.

Pep Guardiola expresses his satisfaction in making City the dominant force in English football.

“Alex was right (at the time), City were not challenging, they were in the middle to bottom,” Guardiola said.

“United and Arsenal at the time were the richest ones, that’s why City were there.

“But after that, Sheikh Mansour and Khaldoon (Al Mubarak), who took over and made an investment. After that Sir Alex could not expect to know that and not even myself who was in Barcelona.

“We were not in the elite and now we are in the elite, maybe it’s uncomfortable for many things. That is a reality and we want to stay as long as possible.”
