Pep Guardiola underestimated the Saints, so for the first time in his career, he did not pass the quarter-finals of the national cup.
Guardiola experienced the biggest debacle from Southampton, who beat Manchester City 2:0.
During his 15-year coaching career, the famous Spaniard won 2 cups each with Bayern and Barcelona, and with City, he won four League Cups and one FA Cup in 6 and a half seasons.
This time, he did not succeed in stringing together successes, because underestimating his rivals and leaving the best for the reserve still had to backfire on him.
Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland entered the game in the second half, but did not manage to score much. Defeat was inevitable at St. Mary’s.
The fiasco was even bigger because City were defeated by the bottom ranked team of the Premier League.
