Pep Guardiola has stated he still loves Franck Ribery, despite the winger criticising his coaching tactics.
The Spanish coach left Bayern Munich for City, after winning three consecutive BuLi titles for the Bavarians.
However, his exit was not met with despair in all quarters, with the Bayern winger claiming the former Barcelona boss lacked experience.
“Pep hasn’t had a long career as manager. He is a young coach,” the former France international told Bild this week.
“He lacks experience. Sometimes he talks too much. Football is very simple.”
However, the former Barcelona coach bears no ill will towards the Frenchman.
“About Ribery I must say I love him very much,” he told a news conference.
“It’s good that Ribery says I’m young. I’m here to learn.”
