Manchester City star slammed teammates after Man United defeat last season

Manchester City superstar Fabian Delph was reported to have ranted angrily following his side's 3-2 defeat to city rivals Manchester United in their Premier League encounter on April 7, 2018.

The Citizens went two goals up in a match that could have sealed their EPL triumph barely one month to the end of the end of the season.

Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan got City started in the 25th and 30th minutes of the game, but a Paul Pogba's brace and a Chris Smalling's winner sealed the victory for the Old Trafford side.

The Sun however reports that the new Amazon documentary series, 'Manchester City: All or Nothing', shows the behind-closed-doors aftermath on April 7.

Two of the club's longest-serving players had their say, with Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure chipping in.

But the England international was said to have gotten so angry that United had put their title party on hold.

The 28-year-old midfielder was heard saying: "F****** shi't man, f**** sake. F****** useless. F*** me. F****** hell."

Kompany adds: "If I wanna see this team go to the next level and do even more, every single detail we need to be honest with ourselves and be hard with ourselves."

Toure then says: "What I'm saying right now is that it's true because in the first half we were there, but in the second half they took us physically.

"I think we have to understand sometimes, because we're fatigued and that's the time we need to regroup."

Delph is not having any excuses though. He continues: "F****** tired? It's simple, it's straightforward. We stopped f****** running in the second half."

Toure disagrees before boss Pep Guardiola tries to calm them down. He says: "Guys. Chill out. Shut up please. No because you, because you, because you. If you disagree, complain to me for my decisions.

"When you lose in football, you think, we didn't run. That is b*******, guys. That is not the point."

Delph reasons: "I'm not blaming anyone, it's just the basics of football. When things go against us and everybody drops their head, just remember the basics.

"Winning our individual battles, sticking together as a unit, f****** defenders defending, midfielders box to box, f****** keepers. Just the basics of football.

"When we go behind, or something comes against us, we freeze. When something goes against us, think of the basics of football."

Guardiola finishes: "Football is not flowers, a good holiday and say everything is easy.

"Football is so complicated at the high level guys. We tried to build something good and you did do good.

"You have to make the last level guys, everyone together. That is the moment the real men, the real football players, the real professionals step up and say 'I'm here'." earlier reported that Manchester United came from two goals down to beat Manchester City 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium to delay their title triumph.

Coming from a 3-0 defeat to Liverpool in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarterfinal clash, the Citizens got the game off to a flying start with two first half goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Guendogan.

Kompany opened scoring for the hosts through a fine header in the 25th minute, while Gundogan’s clinical finish ensured Pep Guardiola’s men won the first half of the game.
