Josep Guardiola fell again with Manchester City with a difficult elimination against Real Madrid in the semifinals of the Champions League. His bad moment in the competition may have a paranormal explanation.
In 2011, Josep Guardiola lifted his second Champions League in just his third season as coach, commanding the best Barcelona in history. Then came his stages at Bayern Munich and Manchester City in which the successes have rained except repeating at the continental level.
This Wednesday they were close to qualifying for their second final in a row but an epic reaction from Real Madrid left them out and there is an explanation that is far from football because we have to go back to a few words from Yaya Touré’s agent, who did not leave the club with good relations with the coach.
Shortly after his departure in 2018, representative Dimitri Seluk made some surprising statements that stand out again this time. “Because of his bad treatment of Yaya Touré, Guardiola turned all of Africa against him, many African fans turned their backs on Manchester City,” he said.
“I am sure that many African shamans will prevent Guardiola from winning the Champions League in the future. It will be like an African curse for Guardiola. Life will tell if I am right or not,” he added.
There are many curses that have become, true or not, a myth in world football such as that of Béla Guttmann with Benfica and it seems that Josep Guardiola is now chasing him.
