Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has denied that he “disrespected” Tottenham Hotspur and that their manager Maurico Pochettino made a “mistake” when criticising him.Pochettino was upset that Manchester City boss Guardiola referred to Chelsea, Manchester United and the “Harry Kane team” when he was talking about City’s Premier League title rivals before the international break.Spurs boss Pochettino claimed the comment was “ungentlemanly,” but Guardiola said he would never be disrespectful about another team.In a press conference ahead of their games against Stoke City, Pep said: “Maybe my memory is not so well, but I was never disrespectful to my colleague,” he said. “I was never disrespectful in a press conference. Never.“When I talked about Harry Kane’s team, it was because Harry Kane was scoring a lot of goals, and I know perfectly that Tottenham are not Harry Kane alone.“I think that last season, the person who spoke most about appreciating the way Tottenham play was me. “I said Tottenham are one of the best teams playing. “So I’m really disappointed if he said that. I don’t know what he said, but I was never disrespectful about my colleagues.
