Realationship between Zlatan and Pep Guardiola
It was that these two were butting heads on one another when Zlatan was in Barcelona team. At the beginning, Pep said that Zlatan was incredibly best player with powerful and tough skills. But, when Zlatan saw Pep starring at him and because of this he was compelled to lose his goal, he shouted roughly at Pep. These kinds of trivial incidents ruined their relationship.
When Pep was asked to comment about their relationship, he kept his mouth shut to denote how worse their relationship was.
