Report: Pep Guardiola Furious With Dani Alves ‘Betrayal’

Pep Guardiola is reportedly furious after Dani Alves ‘betrayed’ him and joined Paris Saint-Germain instead of Manchester City.

The Brazil right-back was reportedly very close to joining the Citizens after giving Guardiola a verbal agreement to sign, according to Marca.

The City boss expected his former player to join the club on Monday and follow the team on the US pre-season tour, but on Wednesday he was announced as PSG player following a last-minute approach by the French giants.

“If Guardiola and Manchester City feel hurt by my decision, I am sorry. But I have come here to be a champion,” Alves said, as quoted by Sport.

“If Pep feels hurt, I apologise.”

Alves will allegedly earn twice as much at PSG, namely £230 000 (R3.9m) per week instead of the £115 000 (R2m) offered by the Premier League side.

The 34-year-old, who had made 208 appearances under Guardiola at FC Barcelona, signed a two-year contract at PSG, and his decision has left his former boss reportedly frustrated.

Marca claim the Spaniard feels betrayed by his former player, suggesting Alves’ transfer came at a big “personal cost because of those who considered themselves friends of his, are now his enemies”.

Money makes the world go around. Besides, the EPL is too demanding physically. Maybe the brother felt he wasn't up to it and took the easy way out. But good financial decision for his family.
