Joao Cancelo gets second assist in two games for Bayern Munich to show Pep what he’s missing as Man City lose to Spurs
MANCHESTER CITY outcast Joao Cancelo grabbed his second assist in as many matches for Bayern Munich on Sunday.
The defender, 28, joined the German club on loan for the rest of the season after falling out with Pep Guardiola.

The pair were reportedly involved in a training ground bust-up after Cancelo found out he was dropped for the club’s FA Cup clash against Arsenal.
This came as Guardiola tweaked his system after questioning his players hunger to win the Premier League again.
With Cancelo’s and the City boss’ relationship becoming strained, the club took the bold decision to allow Cancelo to leave on loan.
However, the Portuguese star started his new venture in stunning fashion with an assist in the DFB cup win over Mainz in midweek.
And he produced a brilliant cross this afternoon for Kingsley Coman to outrageously volley home in the 4-2 victory over Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.
French forward Coman scored two inside the first 14 minutes before Thomas Muller headed in a third.
Jakub Kaminski pulled a goal back and then Bayern were reduced to ten men when Joshua Kimmich was sent off in the 54th minute.
But Jamal Musiala grabbed a fourth before Mattias Svanberg netted a late consolation.
As Cancelo was starting for his new team, his old side suffered a huge blow in the title race as Harry Kane’s record-breaking goal sealed Tottenham a 1-0 win over City.
That left the Cityzens still trailing Premier League leaders Arsenal by five points.
Meanwhile Bayern are now a point ahead of second-placed Union Berlin in the German top-flight.
