"Ask the referees, not me," Guardiola replied in the Sky Sports chain microphones. "Ask Mike Riley and the boys at VAR. I would like to talk about our performance, it was very good. One of the best games we've played, "he explained.
The play in question was the one that preceded the first goal of the Liverpool, marked by Fabinho. In the previous action, the ball touched Trent Alexander-Arnold's hand inside the area. Neither the referee nor the VAR, after the review, they considered criminal, to Guardiola's disbelief.
The Spanish coach did talk about the game and stressed how good Liverpool is and that they showed a lot of personality.
"We always try, we never give up, that's why we won two Premier in a row, because we always fight until the end."
"It is important to grow as a club and as a team. It has been an honor for both teams to show the Premier League and the spectators this kind of match," he said.
Greetings to the arbitral list
At the end of the game, Pep Guardiola gave the referees a handshake. "Thank you thank you very much", said the Spanish coach repeatedly to the members in a sarcastic way for what happened during the game in Anfield.
