Pep Breaks 118-Year-Old Record, Has Pop At Journalist

Pep Guardiola, who recently rewrote history at Manchester City after breaking a 118-year-old record, swore in disbelief after being asked a particular question in a post-match press conference.

The Spaniard guided the Citizens to their best ever start in history, with the club now having won their eighth consecutive game under Guardiola.

In so doing, they broke the record held by Sam Ormerod's 1897/98 City side, which began its season with seven wins and one draw, as the club's official website pointed out.

The Citizens have now won five Premier League games, a record start to a league campaign for them, but are still a few victories short of the club's best ever winning streak – 11 successive wins under previous boss Manuel Pellegrini.

Amid City's brilliant form, one journalist asked Guardiola if he thinks his side could win all four competitions this season, to which the 45-year-old answered in disbelief.

"What the f***?" he muttered, before pausing a while, contemplating a more appropriate answer.

"So Manchester City made it to the Champions League semi-final once, so people believe I am going to win the Champions League because I am a really good coach? I don't think so, guys."

Guardiola and City will now face Swansea twice at the Liberty Stadium, first in the League Cup on Wednesday and then in their next Premier League encounter on Saturday.
