Guardiola charged for two breaches of Uefa's disciplinary regulations

12 April 2018

The 25-year-old was chauffeured to the training base in a Mercedes nine-seater, but did not need any help in dismantling Manchester City in the Champions League, scoring twice over the two legs.

Liverpool's 3-0 first leg lead had already been cut by Gabriel Jesus's second minute opener before City were wrongly denied a second goal on the night and a route back into the tie by a botched offside call against Leroy Sane.

"These kind of games, this competition the impact is so big. I was polite, I was correct", Guardiola said. He argued that if this wrong decision was not made the game could have had a different scenario. It was one of his worst games in the City shirt, as everything he touched either came off poor or he was adjudged offside.

"The referee is a special guy, he likes to be different".

City's European exit capped a wretched week, which also saw them blow the chance to clinch the Premier League title on Saturday when Manchester United came from two goals down to beat their bitter rivals.

Pep Guardiola's men will be desperate to bounce back from their disappointing display in these past seven days after losing three times in just seven days.

He added: "Liverpool can not match the experience of battle-hardened Champions League campaigners like Real and Bayern". We got about them a bit more second half, but we defended well again and that's the key'.

The coach concluded by congratulating Liverpool hoping they represent England well in the semi-finals since they're the only English team still competing.

Although there's no doubt City didn't get the breaks over the course of the two matches against Liverpool, regardless of the refereeing it's tough to argue against the Merseyside outfit being worthy semi-finalists.

Jurgen Klopp the manager of Liverpool celebrates after the match.

Speaking after the win, he said: 'It woke us up that early. I was not overly happy at half-time to be honest.

Defender Dejan Lovren has lifted the lid on the dressing room exchanges which sparked Liverpool into a second-half comeback against Manchester City. "I'm definitely confident that next season we can push everyone, even ourselves, to do better from the beginning to the end".
