This Saturday a new Champions League final was played between Manchester City and Chelsea, and although several Blue players such as N'Golo Kanté were the great figures, the great focus was also on the defeat of Pep Guardiola.
The Spanish coach, who knew how to make history with Barcelona and marking a before and after in the history of football, could not give the Manchester team their first "Orejona" and was tactically surpassed by the London team.
The same thing happened to the coach with Bayern Munich, where he also could not lift the maximum trophy at club level in Europe, despite having spent millions and having real teams.
But everything points to the fact that the "spell" between Pep Guardiola and the Champions League began in 2018, after a supposed African curse, after the relationship between the Spanish and the footballer Yaya Touré.
This was stated by Dimitry Seluk, representative of the footballer who ended up leaving City: “Guardiola made all of Africa turn against him, I'm sure that the African shamans will do everything possible so that Guardiola does not win the Champions League. This will be an African curse for Guardiola. The boomerang will return, Pep ”, expressed the agent to the British media The Telegraph in 2018.
In this way, before each elimination of Manchester City in an edition of the Champions League, everyone thought again about this controversial theory.
Even Seluk himself remembered in 2018, when the Citizens were eliminated with Lyon, of that "curse" that weighs on Guardiola since his bad relationship with Yayá. And he expressed it with a drawing on social networks.
