Pep Guardiola’s post-match press conference went down an unpredictable route following Manchester City’s 7-0 thrashing of RB Leipzig on Tuesday night.

Erling Haaland scored five goals, taking him to 39 for the season, and after addressing the Norwegian’s heroics, talk somehow turned to Hollywood actress Julia Roberts and her visit to Manchester United in 2016.

“I have three idols in my life,” said Guardiola. “Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and Julia Roberts.

“Julia Roberts years ago came to Manchester, not in the period of Alex Ferguson when they were winning title after title, in the last four or five years when we were better than them. But she didn’t come to see us. She went to visit Man United.

“Even if I win the Champions League, it will not [ease] the disappointment of Julia Roberts going to United. My idol.”
