Aymeric Laporte made a cryptic remark about Pep Guardiola after leaving Manchester City last summer. He was one of three big-name players to depart the club, citing a lack of game time as the reason for his exit. Laporte struggled to secure a spot in City’s starting lineup, leading him to complete a move to Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia for just under £24 million. Despite this move, Laporte’s standing in the Spanish national team has not been affected.

During an interview with Radio Marca, Laporte hinted that his exit from City was not as straightforward as expected. He referenced Guardiola’s usual stance of allowing players who don’t want to be at the club to leave, suggesting that his situation was different. Laporte chose not to elaborate further on this comment, but expressed his gratitude towards City and Guardiola. Despite the complexities surrounding his departure, Laporte still holds a place in his heart for the club, having achieved success as a world-class defender during his time at the Etihad.

Laporte’s remarks about Guardiola’s handling of his departure raise questions about the dynamics between the player and the manager. Despite any potential differences, Laporte’s departure from City was ultimately a business decision that allowed him to secure a move to a new club. His success at City and his ongoing involvement with the Spanish national team demonstrate his talent and value as a player, even after parting ways with Guardiola and City.
