Mauricio Pochettino accuses Pep Guardiola of 'disrespect'

Eddie Howe the manager of Bournemouth shakes hands with Lewis Cook after his side's 0-0 draw during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Leicester City at Vitality

Guardiola referred to Tottenham as the "Harry Kane team" when assessing City's title rivals in the wake of his side's victory over Chelsea before the recent worldwide break.

Swansea were the only side to keep him out, as Kane made history by becoming the first man to net two or more goals in three successive away games.

The Tottenham and England man beat Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku to the award after scoring six times in four games.

The 24-year-old also notched goals for England in World Cup Qualifying and Tottenham in the European Cup taking his overall tally for September to 13 in eight matches. "I know Pep and when he is excited after an incredible win, he struggles to keep his position and be a gentleman".

"It did not affect me but was very disrespectful for many people".

Guardiola's choice came as no surprise following City's impressive run in September where they won all four of their league games.

"I think it's a sad comment because the players laugh about that". "I was never disrespectful in a press conference".

'He knows I said Tottenham are one of the best teams playing.

The comment came while referencing other teams that could potentially challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.

City then prized right-back Kyle Walker from Tottenham during the last transfer window and Guardiola was keen to remind both Pochettino and those present of his previous praise. I always said it was Barcelona and it was Pep Guardiola.

Ahead of today's home clash with Stoke, he added: "I'm really disappointed if he said that". Never in my career have I not been respectful.

As someone who regularly forgets even the most basic of details about people's names and the like when speaking in public, I guess I sympathize with Pep a small bit.

And although Pochettino feels the comments from the Spanish boss are disrespectful, the Tottenham manager says that his players have seen the amusing side. There is a lot of credit in the way they play, in the way they are always attacking. "I gave a lot of credit to Tottenham, because last season they finished better than us and that means a lot". That means a lot.

"It's a sad comment", said Tottenham boss Pochettino. "I did it because he scored two goals more against Huddersfield and he got more with the national team", he added. And I think it's important that our position is [to] be clear, be calm, not be aggressive with our opponent.

"Disrespectful? That's what he said?" he asked.

'From the times I spoke with him, maybe my English is not so well, but I was never disrespectful to my colleague.

"What I said, I said".

But Vasilyev indicated that the two Premier League powerhouses will have to wait until the summer to land Fabinho.
