Man City boss Guardiola: Why De Bruyne angered me

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Kevin De Bruyne angered him during their 8-0 thrashing of Watford.

De Bruyne had a hand in five of the Blues' eight goals, including scoring the last, a rasping right-footed drive that gave Ben Foster no chance.

But Guardiola said, "Kevin sometimes is a special player, sometimes he sees something the other guys cannot see on the pitch, not even off [it].

"Sometimes I'm a little bit [angry] when the simple ball you lose it, how with your quality you can lose it?

"But he is incredibly talented player, and sometimes you miss it from here, loses it from here but sometimes his vision up front and the quality he has [is incredible]."
