Guardiola’s controversial statement after his team’s loss to Manchester United
Pep Guardiola, Manchester City manager, has sparked controversy after his team lost 1-2 to Derby against Manchester United on Saturday at the top of the 20th stage of the English Premier League.
“I don’t care about the English Premier League or the League Cup,” Guardiola said after the match in statements released by Bleacher Report.
He added: “We’ve won them before, so we don’t have a problem, maybe it’s time for the other team to win.”
Bruno Fernandez equalized for Manchester United after colleague Marcus Rashford received a pass from Casemiro and was ruled offside, leaving the ball to Fernandez, who put the ball into the net.
Regarding this goal, Guardiola said: “Rashford was offside, but Bruno was not. Whether Rashford broke up the goalkeeper and the defense, I really don’t know, but the law must be in place.”
With the win, United lifted their tally to 38 points and finished third in the league, while title-holders City froze in second with 39 points, five points behind leaders Arsenal.
