AYMERIC LAPORTE taunted Manchester United by saying City’s success is “annoying to our neighbors” – especially as the Red Devils have “won nothing” for years.
pep GuardiolaThe Premier League leaders face five big games in 15 days that could either kill or boost their Treble bid.
The Spanish star told the guard: “Maybe it’s not that they’re fed up with us, but they don’t think it’s normal that we always win.
“If I’m not mistaken, we’ve won 11 trophies in four years [it’s 10, including two Community Shields].
“It can upset people, like our neighbors, who didn’t win anything.
“They have many supporters, we are in the same city. It is difficult [for them] to understand.
“But there is only one winner. They also spent a lot of money.”
Guardiola‘s stylists resume their league campaign at Burnley on Saturday.
City then face the two Champions League quarter-finals with Atletico Madrid, as well as Prem and FA Cup battles with quadruple chases Liverpool.
And Aymeric assumes that there are significant fortnights that can mean even more misery for United & Co.
He said: “I would call that an opportunity. A chance to show that we’re better than all these other teams.”
When asked about the Treble earlier this month, boss Guardiola said: “Once United have done it, it’s happened and someone else can do it.
“People said we could never win three national titles, it was impossible and we did it.
“So if it happens, another team can do it. It wouldn’t be easy, but of course you can do it.”
