Tennis ‘You can come and train me whenever you want’: Zverev and Guardiola’s affectionate moment at Wimbledon

Tennis ‘You can come and train me whenever you want’: Zverev and Guardiola’s affectionate moment at Wimbledon

The Manchester City manager witnessed the third round duel of the recent Roland Garros finalist.

Wimbledon has attracted the attention of more than a dozen stars this week. While the tournament is still far from its defining stages, celebrities such as Roger Federer, Steve Carrell, Dave Grohl and Patrick Mahomes have already passed through the stands at the All England Tennis Club.

A list that was joined this Saturday by Pep Guardiola, who, taking advantage of the end-of-season break, went to London to attend the third round duel between Alexander Zverev and Cameron Norrie.

The Manchester City coach was constantly followed by the cameras and at one point even received a standing ovation from the crowd. All this led the players themselves to notice their presence, generating a funny moment with Zverev, who ended up winning the duel and ensuring passage to the round of 16.

It was during the post-victory interview that the German, a Bayern Munich fan, dedicated a few words to the coach, who was still in one of the boxes of honour. “Today we have incredible people in the royal box, a football legend for me like Pep Guardiola. When I saw Pep, I was nervous for several matches. It’s a privilege to play in front of you,” Zverev noted.

The funny phrase made people laugh and that’s when the German, brand new champion of the Masters 1000 in Rome, dedicated a curious request to him: “First, I want to tell you that Bayern Munich needs a coach and secondly, if you are tired of football, whenever you want, you can come and train on a tennis court”, he concluded.

The good mood between the two continued even outside the central court, as the tournament’s social networks published a series of photos where they were seen sharing in the players’ area. Guardiola even left with a racket signed by the world number four.
