Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has claimed he loves seeing his players shout back at him on the pitch as it proves their desire to succeed.

Midfielder Kevin De Bruyne was spotted telling Guardiola to 'shut up' during the 4-0 victory over Real Madrid after disagreeing with his manager's touchline instruction.

Rather than criticise the Belgian for his actions, Guardiola told the media he enjoys hearing De Bruyne, and rest of his players, get heated because it elevates the whole team and raises the standards on the pitch.
