Ibra and Pep famously fell out during the Swede’s time at Barcelona.

And while Ibra was reluctant to be drawn on the feud when he arrived in England ahead of last season, he fired another shot in the wake of the fireworks that followed City’s 2-1 win on Sunday.

Describing his Nou Camp exit, Ibra said: “He wasn’t the worst coach I’d worked under, but he was certainly the most immature because a man solves his problems.

“I told Guardiola that he’d sacrificed the other players for Messi. He told me he understood me.

“After that, he put me on the bench for the next game, the one after that and the one after that.

“And I thought, ‘he’s solved the problem very well I see!’ After that, he didn’t talk to me or even look at me.

“I’d walk into a room and he’d walk out. I’d go to meet him and he’d go somewhere else. I understood that there was something beyond football.

“But the problem was his, it was he who hadn’t solved the problem with me. I remember on my first day, he told me that the Barcelona players didn’t turn up to training in Ferraris or Porsches.

“He’d already judged me then, but if you don’t know a person then you can’t judge them. I had my experience with him, I don’t know about others.

“But I read the same thing had happened to (Mario) Mandzukic and (Samuel) Eto’o.”
