The new Amazon documentary ‘All or Nothing: Manchester City’ reveals the heated exchange between players following their 3-2 defeat to Manchester United, last season.
“Today you have to win for one reason. You have to win for David Silva and his girlfriend.
“He’s f***ing suffering tonight. When you go out there, you enjoy. Enjoy for him.” https://t.co/zJUcXoAems

City had the chance to claim the Premier League title against their cross-town rivals United in April. Though raising silverware was postponed following defeat to Jose Mourinho’s side. That’s despite racing to a two-goal lead. United came from two-down to eventually secure a dramatic victory, delaying the inevitable as City eventually held aloft the Premier League trophy. And through City’s gripping documentary which chronicles their 2017/18 campaign, footage has surfaced of the dressing room exchange. Transcript below via Give Me Sport: Delph: “F****** shit man, f**** sake. F****** useless. F*** me. F****** hell.”
Kompany: “If I wanna see this team go to the next level, and do even more, every single detail we need to be honest with ourselves and be hard with ourselves.” Toure: “I think the point of what I’m saying right now is that it’s true because in the first half we were there, but in the second half they took us physically. “Because, I think we have to understand sometimes, because we’re fatigued and that’s the time we need to regroup.” Delph: “‘F****** tired? It’s simple, it’s straightforward. We stopped f****** running in the second half.” Guardiola: “When you lose in football, you think, we didn’t run. That is b*******, guys. That is not the point.” Image: Amazon/Manchester City Delph: “I’m not blaming anyone, it’s just the basics of football. When things go against us and everybody drops their head, just remember the basics. “Winning our individual battles, sticking together as a unit, f****** defenders defending, midfielders box to box, f****** keepers… just the basics of football.”
Guardiola: “Football is not flowers, a good holiday and say everything is easy. “Football is so complicated at the high level guys. We tried to build something good and you did do good. “You have to make the last level guys, everyone together. That is the moment the real man’s, the real football players, the real professionals step up and say ‘I’m here.'” If you haven’t yet watched an episode, you need to – it’s brilliant viewing.
