The City fallout: Cancelo’s explosive comments

Joao Cancelo has delivered a scathing critique of his parent club Manchester City and manager Pep Guardiola, suggesting that a return to the Etihad Stadium is unlikely.

Despite being a key part of City’s Premier League triumphs in 2021 and 2022, Cancelo was loaned out to Bayern Munich and then Barcelona.

Cancelo’s contract with City runs until 2027, but his recent comments hint at a strained relationship with Guardiola and the club.

He expressed feeling let down by City’s portrayal of his departure, stating that “lies were told” about his attitude when dropped from the team.

The Portuguese right-back emphasized his commitment to City during his time there, highlighting his dedication even in challenging personal circumstances, such as playing shortly after being robbed and attacked.

Cancelo feels City were “ungrateful” in their handling of his situation and decision to loan him out.

Despite the apparent rift, Cancelo has thrived at Barcelona this season, leading to speculation about a permanent move to the Catalan club.

While no agreement has been reached, Cancelo’s comments suggest a permanent departure from City is likely.
