Rival fans won’t like Joey Barton’s views on what Guardiola’s move to Man City means for English football

'Biggest club'


The announcement that Pep Guardiola will become the Manchester City manager from the start of the 2016/17 season didn’t exactly come as a shock to many people.

The former Barcelona manager has been strongly linked with City long before he announced that he would leave Bayern Munich at the end of the current season.

Joey Barton, who started his senior career with the club, has had his say on the appointment, claiming that it now makes City the biggest club in the country.

Predictably, not everyone agreed with this.

Barton followed with more tweets, clarifying what he meant by ‘biggest’.
