Guardiola risks Premier League fine after Spurs defeat by leaving media hanging

first_imgPEP GUARDIOLA may face a Premier League fine after leaving the media hanging for 45 minutes following Manchester City’s 2-0 defeat by Tottenham.The Manchester Evening News claims that the Spaniard’s lateness meant that home manager Jose Mourinho had already finished his post-match press conference by the time he emerged.1 Pep Guardiola kept his Manchester City players in the away dressing room after defeat at SpursCredit: EPAA debut goal from Steven Bergwijn followed by a strike from Son Heung-min condemned Guardiola’s side to their sixth league defeat of the season.Pep’s frustration was compounded by City’s domination in the game, which saw them miss a penalty in the first half before the tide turned in the second following Oleksandr Zinchenko’s red card.The former Barcelona boss responded by locking his players in the away changing room for three-quarters of an hour after the final whistle before emerging to face the press.But when Guardiola eventually emerged to face the Sky Sports cameras, he insisted the delay was not because he was criticising his stars.He said: “Never. With this performance? How should I be critical after this performance?”I was talking to my staff and my wife. After this performance it would be an incredible mistake to say how bad they are. We created chances and conceded few.”He later told reporters in a press conference when asked what he said: “How proud I am of them, but it’s not enough. I like to see my players playing that way.LADBROKES 1-2-FREE Simply predict Brighton vs Watford, Sheff Utd vs Bournemouth and Man City vs West Ham scores this coming weekend and win £100Most Read in FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by Celtic“Never when we lose do I stay away from my players because I know them.”We lost the game so we talked about how to move forward and keep going.
