Pep Gaurdiola consoled his devastated daughter at the end of Manchester City’s shock defeat to Lyon. The suspended boss watched the Champions League group clash from the stands with his family on Wednesday night.
City’s players looked shell shocked as they fell to their third consecutive Champions League defeat at home.
But Guardiola had more work on his hands when daughter Valentina burst into tears at the final whistle.
The Spanish manager’s youngest appeared upset when the referee put the whistle to his lips.
And Pep was more than happy to be the doting dad as he comforted her before heading off to see his squad in the dressing room.
City will now need to pick themselves up for a trip to Cardiff in the Premier League on Saturday.
But after being tipped by many as favourites for this season’s Champions League title, Guardiola may need a rethink in tactics.
City found it hard to cope with Lyon’s tenacious style, especially in the first half.
But with Hoffenheim and Shakhtar Donetsk the other two teams in the group, City fans will still be confident about reaching the knockout stages of the tournament.
