Although Feeling Not Excessive Celebrity, Guardiola Still Apologize To Manchester United
Pep Guardiola apologized to Manchester United if the club were offended by his team’s celebrations after their 2-1 derby win at Old Trafford. Even so Manchester City manager confirmed that his side did not do anything out of the ordinary.
ESPN FC reports that Pep Guardiola’s celebrations and his troops after his side’s victory at Old Trafford, prompting a confrontation between players and staff from both clubs.
The FA Football Association has observed the feud in the Old Trafford tunnel, but Guardiola says that his team’s celebrations are not overly confined.
“If we do not do things right, then I apologize to all Manchester United. Our intention is not like that. We will celebrate in the locker room. If people do not understand that, then I’m sorry, “said Guardiola.
“We won the derby, if we allude to Manchester United, not just one player, not just Jose (Mourinho), but all over Manchester United, then I’m sorry. Sometimes United made a lot of celebrations in the past at home to Manchester City. All managers celebrate occasionally. We have to enjoy those moments, “he added.
Do not want the Redmond incident to recur
The Manchester City squad also celebrated their victory on the pitch with their supporters present at the stadium, but Pep Guardiola decided to return to the dressing room, even though his staff encouraged him to celebrate the win with his players.
Guardiola said it was important for his team to appreciate supporters, as did the club in Germany, but he was reluctant to return to the field after his controversy with Nathan Redmond from Southampton last month.
“I do a silly thing with Redmond, I do not want to do that, believe me, but sometimes you do it. Sometimes you can control yourself and say ‘OK, I do not have to go there.’We have not won anything yet so we went into the dressing room, “he continued.
