Report: 'Very, good' Man City ace confused by no communication with Guardiola; manager hasn't spoken to him in a long time.
Aymeric Laporte has been left confused by the lack of communication from Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Spaniard has serious doubts about continuing with the club.
It’s also claimed that the centre-half knows he is third-choice behind John Stones and Ruben Dias.
The 27-year-old was left feeling discontent after being left out of the team in the Champions League final.
Laporte has lost trust from the former Barcelona manager.
The Catalan giants have shown a desire to sign the central defender, who wants a move back to Spain.
Laporte was on the periphery of the first team last term, making just 27 appearances across all competitions.
TBR View: Lack of communication with Laporte a horrible look for Guardiola
Over the course of his time with the Citizens, the centre-back has provided phenomenal service.
Three Premier League titles in three-and-a-half seasons is a display of the difference Laporte has made to City.
His influence has been similar to that of Virgil van Dijk, who has himself helped Liverpool win a league and Champions League.
The French-born ace was praise by the Netherlands international, who labelled him a ‘very, good defender’.
His lack of game time last season proved to be incredibly unfortunate. Stones was in sensational form for the Etihad Stadium giants and built up a partnership with Dias.
However, the manner in which the situation was seemingly dealt with was horrific.
To not communicate one of the club’s best defenders shows a lack of respect from the manager.
The least that is expected when you omit a player is an explanation why they’re on the bench.
If reports are to be believed Laporte has been left feeling confused by no communication from Guardiola.
