Pep Guardiola Techniques Fail Due To Horrible Defense Line

Pep Guardiola who had been successful with the Catalan's (Barcelona) and Bayern Munich has since been struggling to keep his team playing his game here in England. Yesterday, at the King Power Stadium Guardiola faced his first successive defeat, losing last week to Chelsea 1-3 at home and now 4-2 to Leicester.
A 2-0 lead in just 5 minutes is enough to depress any manager even demoralize the players but before 20 minutes, he was 3 Nil down. Playing change of formations from 3-4-3 to 3-4-2-1 all in the bid to get back into the game was to no avail.
They kept the possession quite alright but this game showed the creative importance of that creative Argentine Aguero and Fernandino in that City forward, chances failed to surface and the few that came were totally misused.

The defence has always been a  disappointment, they have only keep one clean sheet in 17 games, and his present defense line seem to be all running out of contract including Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and Otamendi except Stone which he purchased himself before the start of the season.
At Barcelona and Bayern Munich, he had a good defense line which included Pique,  Puyol, Boateng, Martinez, Alaba and even the blind will see that these are not present in City, all i see are players above the age of 30 and he said he has hope on them.

Defending his side Guardiola said “No, I’m not disappointed with my players,” he said. “Somebody will tell them but they know, they are professionals, they are old enough to know what happened and hopefully in the future we can improve.”
“I have to improve to solve that, yeah, that’s true. I want to play the football of how I feel... because the basics of the way we play during the season - except a few times - it was quite good.
“So I cannot say today we played bad, that we didn’t play with the intention to create, but after four minutes at 2-0 [down], after the third goal, how we played the second half, we tried, but of course we concede a lot of goals.
“I try, and I realise [I have to do] that, to control the games. We concede few goals in my career as a coach, and here I cannot do that, and I have to analyse why.
“In the Premier League there are different things but the pitch is the same, 11 against 11, and I have to control the little differences between other leagues, but the idea I think is good, and will be good.”
Criticizing the English football he added “It’s typical here in England, they use a lot about the tackles,” he added. “I’m not a coach for tackles. So I don’t train tackles. What I want is to try to play good, score goals, arrive more.
“What’s tackles? Yeah, you have to win the duels, yeah, that’s true, but normally when you play good you win a lot of tackles, but after four minutes at 2-0 [down] in the mind of the players they say, ‘Wow, what happened?’, it’s not easy for them.
“Yeah it’s another aspect of the football but we’re not going to win or lose because of the tackles.”
