Angry Pep Explains Why He Got Sent Off In UCL Loss

They gave their fans hope after scoring after just two minutes, and thought they had grabbed a second when Leroy Sane stabbed home, only to see it incorrectly ruled out for offside.

City were condemned to a 5-1 aggregate loss after losing 2-1 in Tuesday's second leg but their boss felt it could have been a different outcome had decisions gone his team's way in both matches. "Big congratulations to Liverpool", he added.

Asked why he was sent off after confronting the referee, Guardiola replied: "I said it [Sane's effort] was a goal".

Soon after Bernardo Silva struck a long-range shot against the post, Sane had a goal disallowed - incorrectly as it turned out - for offside.

Pep, however, took apparent exception to some of the calls made by referee Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz, and at the half-time mark held a furious exchange with the official.

"I know what happened in Monaco last season, at 1-1, with an incredible penalty from Sergio Aguero".

"He's special. When everybody sees things, he likes to decide the opposite". "I told the lads to wake up because it was not good enough and I said we were sitting too deep", the Croatia global said after one of the most commanding nights of his Liverpool career.

The violent scenes erupted during the quarter-final tie which the Reds went on to win 5-1 on aggregate.

"At Anfield, Gabriel Jesus' strike was a goal".

Liverpool: Loris Karius 6; Trent Alexander-Arnold 7; Dejan Lovren 6; Virgil van Dijk 8; Andrew Robertson 6; James Milner 7; Georginio Wijnaldum;7 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain 6; Mohamed Salah 7; Roberto Firmino 6; Sadio Mane 6. "Hopefully they can represent England well in the semi-final".

"He is a fantastic team manager, player manager as well, everyone is working hard together".

"We've had 10 fantastic months". "It was weird this season because we didn't catch up well from the beginning", he said.

"I don't care who is in (the draw), we are there and we deserved it and so far we fought for each opportunity to get it and then used it".

Salah has enjoyed an incredible season with Liverpool, being the top scorer in the Barclays Premier League.

"We can not compare what we've done in the Premier League when we are here", said Guardiola.
