Pep Guardiola’s men’s management slammed by Danny Mills, who says ‘personal attack’ on Joe Hart was ‘unnecessary’ as details of Man City keeper’s exit emerge


Pep Guardiola’s ‘personal’ attack on Joe Hart was ‘unnecessary’, says Danny Mills, who has criticized the Manchester City boss’ management of men.

Mills was referring to an interview Hart gave where he revealed details of the conversation he had with Guardiola which led to his departure from the Etihad Stadium in 2016.

Hart claims Guardiola told him he wasn’t capable of doing the things the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss wanted from his goalkeepers.

And that didn’t sit well with Mills, who thinks Guardiola should have handled the situation better.

“I think he maybe went too far in what he said and how he said it,” Mills told talkSPORT.

“If you don’t like a player and you don’t want him, fine, you can be honest with him, but there’s no need to attack him personally.

“You don’t have to say ‘you’re past that point, your body doesn’t do that anymore, you’re no good’, there’s no point. Just say ‘in my opinion, I don’t think you’re good enough. good”. End of. You don’t need to hammer it home.

“That’s not good management, do you think Joe Hart kept that to himself? Don’t you think he told his homies and teammates? They’ll think ‘this new manager is a bit a beep”.

“It’s not good man management for the whole team. Doesn’t he think it won’t go any further?

How should Guardiola have handled this? Well, Mills thinks he should take inspiration from Sven Goran Eriksson’s book.

Mills praised the former England manager for his candor when he told him he was no longer part of his plans at City.

“I had one of those conversations at Man City… I was out for a long time, almost two years,” Mills added.

“Sven came in and they had just brought in Vedran Corluka for around £8m, which was a lot for a right-back.

“Sven just pulled me in and said, ‘I really appreciate what you’ve done in the past, but you’ve been away for a while, and as far as I’m concerned, I’ve bought this new right-back and He plays. If he is fit, he plays and you are unlikely to play this season. If you want to stay, I have no problem with that. I know you’re a good boy, if you want to stay on the bench…you might get along once in a while.

“He then said, ‘Or if you want to move or go on loan, that’s fine with me. I’ll let you do it, I’m happy anyway.

“I admired his honesty and thanked him for it because not all managers like you as a player… I’d rather a manager be upfront and give me options than say ‘keep trying , you might enter “. False hope is no hope.

“He did it the right way, he didn’t take me down.”
