What did Pep Guardiola say about Steven Gerrard? | The Sun

PEP GUARDIOLA is one of the greatest managers in football history – and has changed how the game is played.

But he is not perfect and has put his foot in it after a passing comment made over an incident that occurred before he even managed in the Premier League.

After it was announced Manchester City were being probed by the Premier League for over 100 suspected breaches of FFP rules, the Spaniard has come out fighting in a number of press conferences.

But one recent comment was adjudged to have gone a bit too far and Guardiola has apologised to Gerrard.

What did Pep Guardiola say about Steven Gerrard?

Guardiola was commenting on an incident that occurred during the 2013-14 season.

Liverpool were playing at home against Chelsea, a match they needed to win, but Gerrard slipped while on the ball and Demba Ba raced through to score for Jose Mourinho's side.

The Blues went on to win the game 2-0, with former Red Fernando Torres setting up Willian for the second.

If City are found guilty of their FFP breaches, they could have the 2013-14 title stripped, with Liverpool declared retrospective champions.

Commenting on the FFP probe Guardiola said: “Come on! Those moments belong to us.

"They absolutely belong to us, regardless of the sentence, they belong to us. Think what we’ve done — nobody can remove that.

“The good and bad moments we live, that’s part of everything and that’s not going to change, of course not.”

He added: “The goal from Sergio Aguero . . . and I don’t know if we are responsible for Steven Gerrard slipping at Anfield.

"Was that our fault?

“All the moments we lived these years together. The Premier League will decide . . . but I know what we won and the way we won it.

“I know the effort we put in.

"If something happened in 2009 or 2010, it is not going to change one second of it.”
