His place was taken by the likes of Douglas Costa and Kingsley Coman under Guardiola last season,

Speaking to newsmen on life and experiences under the Catalan, Franck  Ribbery blasted Guardiola over lack of trust. He praised his former Bayern Managers but left the Spaniard out of the list.

“I feel free and I am fully motivated,” the 33-year-old told Kicker. “Carlo Ancelotti is a gift for the club. Since Ancelotti has arrived, I feel more trust.

“He’s a great coach. I need people like him, Jupp Heynckes or Ottmar Hitzfeld. I need this trust in me, to play off my strengths.

“It all depends on things like trust, respect and proximity. Then I cannot only give 100 percent – I can give 150 percent.

“With Ancelotti we can reach something great and I’m really looking forward to the next season.

This is the the second time a former player of Guardiola is criticizing him publicly. It will be recalled the superstars such as Samuel Eto, Ronaldinho, Yaya Toure and Zhlatan Ibrahimovic has at one time come out to criticize him over poor treatment.

Guardiola is a great coach no doubt but he may have to change something in the way he handles his students.
