Pep Guardiola locked himself in his office after a 1-1 draw with Everton in August 2017 that was one of the lowest moments of his Manchester City reign.

That day, City were held by Everton at the Etihad Stadium despite dominating, with Wayne Rooney netting for the Toffees as they ensured that the points were shared between the sides.

Guardiola was so angry at the situation that he decided to lock himself in his office and said he did not want to see anyone.

That meant his wife Cristina, his children and close friend Ronald Koeman, who was in charge of Everton, were not allowed to speak to him.

According to the Sun, he was angry at the situation and unhappy that his team had dropped points.

It followed his first season in charge, when City had ended the season without a trophy, and that was frustrating him.

The doubts were starting to consume Guardiola before he received an important knock on the door of the office.

A new book called 'Pep's City - the Making of a Superteam', details how City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak told Pep: 'You're our man. There's no one else. Don't worry.'

He has since said: 'That evening was a tense and difficult moment but it would spawn thousands of wonderful ones.

'When you set out to do something so difficult and ambitious, the joy and stress go hand in hand.'

City would go on to win 18 matches in a row, a record-breaking run, and gave Guardiola his first Premier League title.

Guardiola's ally Txiki Begiristain later revealed: 'It was the way Khaldoon talked to him that night, he showed how much confidence he had in us.

'Was it what Pep needed to hear? Of course. But he said it with such conviction and Pep believed him.'
