Pep Guardiola is a unique character in our beloved sport. As a football tactician, he's a genius and innovator who continues to change the way we look at the sport. When he's on the sidelines, he's a mad man, continuously shouting instructions and gesturing to his players throughout the matches.

And sometimes, even his gestures are unique. Like this one, during the second half of Manchester City's 5-0 victory against Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League:

That is a genius football manager, known and adored all around the world, smacking himself in the ass. This certainly is an instruction to his players to be careful and always watch their back when receiving a pass, something Guardiola always asks from his midfielders.

Still, that looks really weird. This isn't the first butt related incident that Guardiola has been involved in, which makes this even weirder. There are so many body parts to use when explaining football, Pep. Leave the butt alone.
