Chill out. Shut up please. No because you, because you, because you. If you disagree, complain to me for my decisions.“When you lose in football, you think, we didn’t run. That is b*******, guys. That is not the point.”Delph reasons: “I’m not blaming anyone, it’s just the basics of football. When things go against us and everybody drops their head, just remember the basics. Fabian Delph has emerged as one of Manchester City’s dressing room leaders with a passionate X-rated blast in the aftermath of their derby defeat at the Etihad last season.City were on course to wrapping up a third Premier League title against their arch nemesis’ but squandered a two-goal lead, as Manchester United launched a stunning second-half comeback through Chris Smalling and a Paul Pogba double to grab a 3-2 win. 4 Skipper Kompany then says: “If I wanna see this team go to the next level and do even more, every single detail we need to be honest with ourselves and be hard with ourselves.”But what seemed to really irk Delph was the suggestion from Toure that “tiredness” was the reason for City’s collapse.“What I’m saying right now is that it’s true because in the first half we were there, but in the second half they took us physically,” Toure said.“I think we have to understand sometimes, because we’re fatigued and that’s the time we need to regroup.”A furious Delph continues: “F****** tired? It’s simple, it’s straightforward. We stopped f****** running in the second half.” Fabian Delph was furious after City’s second-half collapse over United in April – which denied them sealing the title over their arch nemesis “Winning our individual battles, sticking together as a unit, f****** defenders defending, midfielders box to box, f****** keepers. Just the basics of football.“When we go behind, or something comes against us, we freeze. When something goes against us, think of the basics of football.”Guardiola finishes: “Football is not flowers, a good holiday and say everything is easy.“Football is so complicated at the high level guys. We tried to build something good and you did do good.“You have to make the last level guys, everyone together. That is the moment the real men, the real football players, the real professionals step up and say ‘I’m here’.” The new Amazon eight-part documentary series, ‘Manchester City: All or Nothing’, shows the behind-closed-doors fallout from the April 7 showdown.Two of the club’s longest-serving players Vincent Kompany and former midfielder Yaya Toure chipped in with their say during the heated exchange.But Delph was incensed that City’s title party had been put on hold by United, and in no uncertain terms let his team-mates know of his grievances.The former Aston Villa midfielder can be heard saying: “F****** shit man, f**** sake. F****** useless. F*** me. F****** hell.”last_img
