Dortmund’s victory over Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup was undoubtedly a great game which will set the tone for the coming season. However, it looks like Pep Guardiola may have taken the game a little too seriously.
In a quick team talk, Guardiola appears to slap his newly-signed Barcelona recruit Thiago Alcantara across the face in front of the entire team.
The bitter loss ended Guardiola’s perfect run at Bayern after taking over from Jupp Heynckes, who led the Bavarian side to an unprecedented treble last season. The former Barca manager didn’t look happy with his team’s performance one bit and expressed displeasure after the match:
”I don’t have the feeling that they played much better than us. We played well, we did things right. We played against a strong team, who played the Champions League final. But I’m honored for my players. It’s a good lesson for us. After one month, I am very happy with our performance.”
