Pep Guardiola defends Man City spending after Champions League exit

Pep Guardiola defends Man City spending after Champions League exit

Guardiola ran onto the field at half-time to pull his protesting players away from the official before embarking on his own rant at Mateu Lahoz that saw him watch the second half from the stands.

"You will not become a victor overnight - it happens from time to time - but it's a coincidence and a little bit of luck". Bernardo Silva hit the post and Leroy Sane had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside. It's unclear what Guardiola said, but it was enough for him to have been sent off at halftime of Liverpool's massive win.

"We went from a possible 2-1 lead to 2-1 deficit".

"I was polite, I was correct, but Mateu Lahoz is a special guy, he likes to be different, he likes to be special". Only I would say that all the teams around the world - maybe in two years we spent more - but over an average of five or 10 years a lot of teams spend a lot of money.

Mohamed Salah paid tribute to Liverpool's resilience after the Reds responded to an early setback to seal their place in the Champions League semi-finals in remarkable fashion on Tuesday.

Guardiola felt City were on the wrong end of some poor decisions, which he felt included Raheem Sterling being denied a penalty after a challenge by Andy Robertson.

"These kind of games, this competition the impact is so big".

"These are figures that would make any country in the world proud", the organisation's Sally Johnson said, before adding that more donors are still needed.

Referring to last season's Champions League, after an incident involving Sergio Aguero in City's game against Monaco, Guardiola said that the Spanish referee "likes to be different".

While opponents have failed to hurt either team domestically, they have found life tougher in the Champions League.

"We didn't play great in the two games, but we congratulate Liverpool".

Former Newcastle and Spurs winger Chris Waddle reckons these impressive displays mean Klopp's side should be considered second favourites to win this seasons Champions League behind current holders Real Madrid.

Per the Guardian's Andy Hunter, manager Jurgen Klopp lashed out at the "idiots" who did so, but it would seem his words had little effect on some of the fans who went overboard again on Tuesday.

City have now lost their last three matches - twice against Liverpool and the defeat to Manchester United in the derby - but Guardiola said they should be proud of what they have achieved over the season with his side needing just two victories to wrap up the Premier League title.
