- Kevin De Bruyne jokingly slammed Man City manager Pep Guardiola during their Premier League title celebration
- The Belgian was caught on video calling the Spaniard 'sh*t coach' before bursting into laughter
- Guardiola led the Citizens to their second straight EPL triumph in his first three years in charge of the club
Manchester City attacker Kevin De Bruyne shocked his manager Pep Guardiola after jokingly referring to him as a "sh*t coach" during their title celebration over the weekend.
The Belgian came in as a substitute in Sunday's 4-1 demolition over Brighton & Hove Albion which helped them beat Liverpool to lift the trophy on last Premier League match day.
De Bruyne featured in just 19 English topflight matches during the recently concluded season - scoring two goals and assisting two others.
The comment meant nothing to the Spanish tactician as SunSport reports that Guardiola knew the playmaker was joking during their second Premier League triumph celebration.
Guardiola was sighted in a not too clear picture hugging the Belgian who shouted: "You'e a sh*t coach. You only win!"
The manager surprisingly opened his mouth before realising his player was only joking - as de Bruyne bursted into laughter and his manager grinned in the process.
Meanwhile, a number of supporters on social media didn't understand the Belgian was fooling around.
One strait-laced tweet pointed out City's combined haul from their successive titles: "Pep best coach ever 198 points in two seasons."
But another fan joked: "Press: Kevin De Bruyne to Real Madrid confirmed! "
One post saluted de Bruyne's sarcasm by adding: "Indeed sh*t coach the master the professor....Football redefined.....Champions."
Meanwhile, Guardiola is already taking steps to keep City ahead of Liverpool - and any pretenders to the crown - next season.
Reports in Italy say Etihad chiefs are ready to overtake neighbours United in the £51 million race for Juventus' Portugal right-back Joao Cancelo, 24.
