Guardi­ola 'prefers sex to coach­ing'

The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - SPORT -

MANCH­ESTER, United King­dom: Manch­ester City man­ager Pep Guardi­ola has laughed off a sug­ges­tion his coach­ing is "bet­ter than sex".

The com­ment was re­port­edly made by Paris Saint-Ger­main de­fender Dani Alves, who is cur­rently pro­mot­ing a doc­u­men­tary about his time at Barcelona play­ing un­der Guardi­ola.

Be­fore Sun­day's Pre­mier League home match against Manch­ester United, a re­porter asked Guardi­ola for his re­ac­tion at a press con­fer­ence, prompt­ing him to re­spond: "I pre­fer the sex -- by far."

The ques­tion may owe some­thing to a mis­taken in­ter­pre­ta­tion of some­thing Alves said in 'Take the Ball, Pass the Ball', a doc­u­men­tary look­ing at Guardi­ola's time as Barcelona boss, which saw the Span­ish club win the Cham­pi­ons League in both 2009 and 2011.

Brazil­ian star Alves, re­fer­ring to Barca's late win­ner against Chelsea in the 2009 semi-fi­nal, said: "It is be­cause of mo­ments like this that we all love foot­ball. The only thing that beats it is sex."
