Liam Gallagher On Manchester City, Pep Guardiola And Joe Hart


Liam Gallagher insists Pep Guardiola cannot afford another trophyless season at Manchester City.

The Spaniard enjoyed hugely successful spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich but had had a tricky first season at the Etihad.

City ended the Premier League campaign 15 points adrift of leaders Chelsea while they lost to Monaco in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Guardiola has already splashed the cash on Bernardo Silva and Ederson with Juventus full-back Dani Alves expected to join them.

And former Oasis frontman believes he can have no excuse if City fall adrift again next term.

"It is absolutely necessary to win the title next season, we cannot leave it to Chelsea again," he told French football magazine So Foot.

"If we [Manchester City] don't win anything then he [Pep Guardiola] won't be able to stay."

City finished above rivals United last term, but Gallagher doesn't think that is enough.

"We have gone beyond that stage. We have to win the title and we must do well in the Champions League," he added.

Gallagher was also critical about Guardiola’s treatment of England No.1 Joe Hart.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper was exiled on loan to Serie A side Torino last year and is understood to be up for sale.

"Pep made a mistake in getting rid of Joe Hart so soon. He shot himself in the foot," Gallagher said.

"He should have kept him for another season, especially with Kompany's injury. Without them two, there was a lack of leadership in defence."
