‘I’ve been thrown out of better places than this’ – Martin Brundle ushered away after awkward encounter with Man City boss Pep Guardiola at Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

    Martin Brundle is no stranger to awkward encounters and faced another as he tried to speak to Pep Guardiola on his latest gridwalk.

    One man who he bumped into was Manchester City boss Guardiola who was enjoying a break from action due to the World Cup in Qatar.

    While being used to working with the press as part of his role in the Premier League, Guardiola seemed less-than impressed when approached by Brundle for a chat ahead of the race.

    After being approached by Brundle, he said: “I just spoke already with Sky! I spoke twice with Sky.”

    Brundle replied: “Okay, three times lucky then,” to which Guardiola sarcastically responded: “Yeah, I’m lucky.”

    The Sky Sports reporter then tried to talk about football, to which the Man City head coach said: “No, let’s not talk about football today.

    Brundle was then ushered away by two security guards, to which he joked: “It’s okay, I’ve been thrown out of better places than this.”

    With City’s next match not until December 22nd, Guardiola will no doubt be hoping that he and his players can enjoy a break before returning to what will be a hectic run of Christmas fixtures.
