Pep Guardiola has continued his chaotic defence of Manchester City in gentle of their latest Premier League fees by claiming Steven Gerrard’s well-known slip in 2014 is a second that ‘belongs’ to them.
The Premier League dominated earlier this week that Man City had breached over 100 rules in recent times, and although a punishment has not but been determined, it may vary from factors deductions to expulsion to the stripping of titles.
When Guardiola addressed the media within the aftermath of this ruling, he accused different Premier League sides (particularly Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy) of conspiring in opposition to Man City.
He continued this tirade forward of Sunday’s go to of Aston Villa, claiming that having titles retroactively taken away from City could be pointless as these moments nonetheless ‘belong’ to them.
“Those moments belong to us. They absolutely belong to us, regardless of the sentence they belong to us,” Guardiola mentioned.
“The goal from Sergio Aguero [in 2012 against QPR], when [Mario] Balotelli slipped. I don’t know if we are responsible for Steven Gerrard slipping at Anfield [in 2014 against Chelsea]. Was that our fault? I have respect for Steven Gerrard – but that moment belongs to us.
“The moments that we lived these years collectively, the Premier League will resolve…however I do know what we received and the way in which we received it. I do know the hassle we put in. If one thing occurred in 2009 or 2010 it isn’t going to change one second.”
