​Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola had recently drawn the huge outrage from Real Madrid fans and coach Santiago Solari for omitting ​Real Madrid out of his list of top three football clubs in the last decade.


In his press conference ahead of Manchester City’s clash with Chelsea this weekend, Guardiola responded to Solari and Real Madrid when a reporter informed him about Solari's response and Madrid fans' anger to his earlier comments.


Guardiola said, "Thank you so much, but I will be nice for the Madrid supporters, who are upset with me, who are saying the best team in Europe is Real Madrid. Because in the last three years they won [the Champions League] and I think they are the best team by far in Europe in the last decade, and the best team is Real Madrid."




"But Real Madrid is not the best team of the decade when you count leagues and cups and the other ones, because ​Juventus​Barcelona and Bayern Munich won six or seven times and they [Madrid] won two. I am pretty sure that Solari now understands my answer better. I am pretty sure they are happy now with me.”


Fast forward to Santiago Solari's recent interview as revealed by ​ASThe Madrid caretaker coach had a reply ready towards Guardiola as he stated, "Madrid is the best club of the last century and in the history of the game. And having said that, Madrid is also the best of the last decade.”
