Loads of Liverpool fans are absolutely rinsing Pep Guardiola, after the Manchester City boss proved he is still hurting over last season’s Champions League clash.
Raheem Sterling was awarded one of the most bizarre penalties you will ever see against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday, and Liverpool fans can’t quite believe Guardiola’s verdict on the incident.
The former Reds wonderkid raced through on goal in the first half, only to trip on the turf and tumble to the ground. The referee awarded a penalty, despite the fact that the Shakhtar defender was not even in touching distance of Sterling.
It certainly was not a dive from the English international, but many rival fans have said he should have alerted the referee to his mistake.
Guardiola said after the match that the youngster should indeed have told the referee, before bizarrely claiming James Milner should have done the same last season.
“Last season, Milner could say the pass to the second goal in the 44th minute was a legal goal,” the Man City boss said.
That goal would have put Manchester City up 2-0 at the Etihad, but was incorrectly ruled out for offside. Leroy Sane was in an offside position before scoring, but the last touch had come from Milner.
Reds’ fans are destroying Pep for the comment, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Man City could’ve admitted they cheated FFP as well
