Pep Guardiola, Manchester City’s manager, has replied to Jose Mourinho after what he said in a post-match conference after Manchester United lost 2-1 to Manchester City in the Manchester Derby.
According to Metro and Express, Pep Guardiola said:” Last season it was the same thing, we won here and the reason was the referee, and now again.”
Pep Continued:” Yesterday he talked about the referee, and we are an honest team. We came to play and we had 75% possession, which means we want to play.”
Also, Pep Guardiola defended his players against Mourinho’s comments that they are “divers” and said:” That’s not true, it’s not an excuse.”
Knowing that Ander Herrera was booked in the match against Manchester City for diving, which was ironic by Jose Mourinho to accuse Manchester City players of being “divers” as well.
On the other hand, Jose Mourinho has confessed that the Premier League title race may be over after their 2-1 loss against the Citizens in the Derby where Romelu Lukaku was behind the loss where he provided two assists to Manchester City in one of his worst matches in Manchester United career, and maybe professional career as well. Knowing that Lukaku scored just twice in over 2.5 months.
