A FURIOUS Pep Guardiola slapped away a Sky Sports camera after shouting at forward Erling Haaland.

Guardiola was in typical demanding form as he laid into his star centre-forward despite him scoring two goals during the champions’ first half against Burnley.

The Catalan marched over to Haaland with arms outstretched and was clearly demanding more from the player – despite him bagging a brace in the first half.

Much of what he said was inaudible but he was heard shouting “That was totally the opposite” before walking to slap the broadcast camera away.

Haaland appeared to be completely nonplussed by what his manager was saying and did not reveal a response to Pep’s provocation on the pitch.

He then took off his hairband to allow his substantial blonde locks to dangle.

Fans were quick to react to Pep’s antics on Twitter, with one saying: “Pep pushing the camera & shouting at his Striker who’s bagged two goals nobody cares – but if that had been a certain Jose Mourinho they’d be in f****** uproar and talking about it for months.”

Another responded: “What more does he want?”

A third said: “Pep is never satisfied.”

City got off to a dream start in their title defence with Haaland opening the scoring after just four minutes.


Haaland netted the opener from close-range after Rodri put it on a plate for him as normal business was resumed for City.

But there was a spanner in the works after 22 minutes when De Bruyne hobbled off in what looked like a reoccurence of the hamstring tear he suffered in the final of the Champions League in June.

Haaland doubled his, and City’s goal tally for the season in the 36th minute with a powerful strike.

It’s a good omen for the Norwegian who is looking to repeat his golden boot heroics of last season as part of a City team that won a historic treble.

Vincent Kompany will be hoping to avoid a repeat of last season’s 6-0 drubbing the Clarets received in the FA Cup quarter final.
