Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has come under huge criticism 'once again' from former Bayern Munich surgeon Dr. Hans-Wilhelm who referred to him as "weak self-confidence."
Muller-Wohlfahrt was established as the orthopaedic surgeon of choice for a number of leading sporting stars, including sprinting great Usain Bolt, and had worked at Bayern for more than 35 years by the time Guardiola was appointed as head coach in 2013.
Both Guardiola and Muller clashed a lot during the City manager's time at Bayern with the former Barcelona boss irritated by Muller-Wohlfahrt's refusal to attend training sessions and reportedly clashing with the veteran physician over a number of issues, including treatment for the injury-plagued Thiago Alcantara.
Things took a new twist after Bayern's 3-1 defeat to Porto in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in 2015, as Muller-Wohlfahrt and three members of his staff stepped down and claimed they were held responsible for the defeat.
Bayern stuck to their guns in the second leg which saw them overturned the deficit in the second leg before falling short against Barcelona in the semi-finals, while Muller-Wohlfahrt is now back working with the club in a different capacity.
Muller-Wohlfahrt said in an extract from his book, Seeing with your Hands: My Life and my Medicine, published in Bild. wrote: "I think Pep Guardiola is a person with a weak self-confidence who does everything to hide that from other people,"
"Because of that he seems to live in a constant fear. Not so much of defeats but of the loss of power and authority.
"He knew everything better: Five minutes warm-up had to be enough. But that couldn't end up well.
"Apparently he saw me as a receiver of commands whom he could order every time he wants."
Muller-Wohlfahrt added that he found himself yelling angrily at Guardiola as their relationship went downhill.
"I shouted at Guardiola and hit the table with my fist so hard that the plates and cups clanked. The first time during all the years [at Bayern] I had to be loud," .
NAIJ.com previously reported that Pep Guardiola is reportedly plotting a surprise transfer raid for Barcelona's veteran midfielder Andres Iniesta.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Spain international has been one of the best playmakers in the world for up to a decade, and Guardiola is seemingly bent on a reunion with Iniesta.
