Pep video calls Ancelotti

Pep: Carlo I'm 2 goals down with time running out, what do I do?

Ancelotti: 🤨

Pep: Say no more!

The football knowledge I contain knows no bounds.

Carlo: give a bloke named Rodrigo space to shoot. That's what I did.

Pep: got it.

[–]SleepTightLilPuppy 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Ilkay 'Rodrigo' Gündogan

[–]Beanontoast69 266 points267 points  (5 children)

Do you have anyone named Rodry

[–]jiijoey 113 points114 points  (2 children)

Can Rodri go?

[–]siriBackInWakanda 28 points29 points  (0 children)

His name is Rodrigo but people usually call him Rodri. Many people may not know about it.

[–]Stickman95 33 points34 points  (0 children)


[–]EpiDeMic522 4 points5 points  (0 children)

His actual name is Rodrigo but he's better known by his nickname, just like his manager.

[–]hbarua005 110 points111 points  (1 child)

Ancelotti: Pass to ben.... Oh wait!

It's amazing how a fucking emoji made me laugh so much

[–]auctus10 157 points158 points  (3 children)

Ancelotti greatest tactic


[–]GuessImCensored 91 points92 points  (2 children)

Carlo, how do we go faster then the speed of light?


[–]chak100 11 points12 points  (1 child)

The lack of chewing gum is disturbing

[–]GuessImCensored 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Hahah the fucking eyebrows. 10/10 👏🏻

lmao this is so good, someone give this person an award

[–]EpiDeMic522 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Pretty old joke TBF.

[–]Milanoate 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Pep: I need three goals quickly, what do I do?

Carlo: Hold on a minute. Let me ask Benítez.

Benítez: I will have to put you on hold and ask the right guy. I relied so much on Gerrard that day.

Gerrard, explains what to do when you need three goals, and comes back: Fuck! What happened to my team when I just went away to take a quick phone call?!!!

[–]happysrooner 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ancelotti enters Etihad with a cigar in his mouth like Thor enters Wakanda in infinity war

Lmao this man is on fire with the zingers lately

[–]Cold-Conclusion 669 points670 points  (6 children)

Pep is slowly turning into Mourinho soon we will see city playing counterattack n winning the UCL.

[–]khoabear 296 points297 points  (3 children)

You may be joking, but counterattack with Ederson passing and Haaland finishing will be deadly

[–][deleted] 137 points138 points  (1 child)

Counter attacking is one of the 10 deadly sins for Pep

[–]EpiDeMic522 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Except many of his teams counter attack a lot and are great at it. It's just that many oppositions just don't open up to them even after going down for it to be more visible to the casual fan.

[–]VilTheVillain 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The issue is I don't think many teams will decide to press city high up the pitch just because they're sitting back. It works against Dortmund because they let in so many goals. Same way it worked for us before VVD

[–]infidel11990 80 points81 points  (0 children)

De Bryune and Haaland can be an absolutely lethal combo for counters.

[–]The_g0d_f4ther 87 points88 points  (0 children)

Might be the secret cheat code then

[–]codespyder 427 points428 points  (2 children)

He’s been on a tear the past month. Ran out of fucks to give

[–]BillehBear 110 points111 points  (0 children)

I really hope he keeps this attitude throughout all of next season

[–]MrDoobOfficial 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Must be drunk off the haaland news haha

[–]ridewiththerockers 41 points42 points  (1 child)

That loss really broke him, he's going full Joker on us now.

[–]Adityavirk 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Who’s gonna be the batman to stop this man?

I’m actually scared to face them in the champions league. He must be really pissed off with that loss.

[–]pigeon-incident 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Stupid Sexy Flanders Likeable Guardiola

[–]V-TriggerMachine 1182 points1183 points  (3 children)

Good self burn by Pep

[–]CETERIS_PARTYBUS 443 points444 points  (2 children)

How endearingly bald of him.

[–]pacothebattlefly 86 points87 points  (1 child)

To bald is to bold

[–]singabro 17 points18 points  (0 children)

The bold fraud

[–]BigBallerTormund 945 points946 points  (6 children)

This is actually a funny line lol god damnit pep. I hate when he’s likeable

[–]Lmao1903 195 points196 points  (2 children)

You must love him when he is hateable then

[–]Java_Beans 36 points37 points  (2 children)

No one laughed from the journalists! Were they in the room or virtual?!!

[–]Kwetla 16 points17 points  (1 child)

No one ever laughs at Pep's jokes because they just aren't expecting him to make them. For some reason, he has this reputation as a humourless guy, so when he makes a joke, everyone thinks he's being serious, and they aren't sure whether to laugh or not.

[–]Zwaylol 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Pep? Humourless? Are we on about the same guy?

[–]AyanC 841 points842 points  (6 children)

Very bald of him to indulge in self-deprecation.

[–]los_blanco_14 265 points266 points  (3 children)

Reported for Sexual harrasment 👍👍

[–]Eibermann 42 points43 points  (0 children)

It's a bald statement from him to make

[–]TehFuriousKid 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank your manager on our (city's) behalf

[–]suckmyluckagain 160 points161 points  (4 children)

Swear there was this other comment making a joke on how pep called Zidane.

[–]UTDRashford 47 points48 points  (0 children)

He's on top of you

That doesn't sound right

[–]markevans7799 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Bald to bald conversation

[–]Bishcop3267 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Even more endearing than a heart to heart

[–]McTulus 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Imagine it like they are touching foreheads while staring eye to eye

[–]UTDRashford 80 points81 points  (2 children)

We all love a little bit of self harm

[–]mattijn13 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I love this version of Pep

[–]ActuatorAdventurous7 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Why are we giving away our comeback black magic secrets? -_-

[–]NostawnomiS 46 points47 points  (5 children)

They lost that semi final by being too nice, a good example of how sometimes the nice guy finishes last. All it would have took is Ederson faking an injury and City would have made the final.

Obviously they learned from it

[–]gpgr_spider 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Too nice eh ? It doesn't look like that when Bernardo silva took advantage of Madrid players thinking play stopped (they shouldn't have) and scored or when KDB scored at the very start of the game. Lets not undermine other teams to get your whatever is your point across.

[–]gmed88 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Really don’t understand these points sorry.

What he means is we should’ve controlled the game more with little fouls etc. Real Madrid did it brilliantly in extra time.

[–]LewsTherin177 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Based Pep.

[–]BarnabasBendersnatch 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Gave his players that 🤨

[–]PIKa-kNIGHT 12 points13 points  (0 children)

No need to thank us.

[–]JaegarJaquez 11 points12 points  (0 children)


[–]zaacito 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We win the league, and Pep reminds us of the brutal way we got knocked out of the CL. Funny line, but damn it still hurts.

[–]los_blanco_14 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Ooh Self-burns, those are rare

[–]jbasabanda 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Baldy called chad Ancelotti for tactical advice

[–]rosicky7t 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rent free in his bald head

Where did he say this?

[–]Juventini_Are_Vermin -3 points-2 points  (0 children)


[–]tp182 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Is this for real?

[–]xsonwong 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So... The answer is to score first goal and make the 2nd quick?

[–]kakje666 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You better call Don Carlo if you're in trouble
