Manchester City's manager, Pep Guardiola, became an unintentional viral sensation during a recent press conference.
While discussing the strengths of Liverpool's team ahead of their derby, Guardiola stumbled over the pronunciation of two of the three players he mentioned. While he had no trouble with Mohamed Salah, the names of Dominik Szoboszlai and Ryan Gravenberch proved to be a bit of a tongue-twister.
Guardiola referred to the talented Hungarian player, Dominik Szoboszlai, as "Szvolazi," inadvertently creating a light-hearted moment. This slip of the tongue even brought a smile to the Liverpool stars, with Szoboszlai himself reacting to Guardiola's pronunciation with a series of laughing emojis on social media.
The derby between Manchester City and Liverpool, scheduled for today at 13:30, is not just another game. It's a high-stakes match that could influence the trajectory of the league. Guardiola's humorous moment at the press conference adds a touch of levity to the intense rivalry between these two top-tier teams.
