The Anfield club was upset with the way City fans behaved after Sunday’s heated Premier League match at Anfield. They talked about “vile chants about football stadium tragedies” that happened in the 1980s.
Liverpool beat Premier League champion City 1-0 thanks to a goal by Mohamed Salah in the second half.
Along with the chants, there was also graffiti on the Anfield Road end stand that had the same kind of theme.
Guardiola was the first person from to talk about it in public. He did so at his usual press conference before a game on Friday.
He said, “I didn’t hear the chant.” “I’m so sorry if it did happen. If this happened, it doesn’t show who we are as a team and a club.
“But don’t worry. Even if we make mistakes, we can still act perfectly.”
Sunday’s game between City and Liverpool was not only ruined by chanting and vandalism.
During the game, coins were thrown at Guardiola, and as the City bus was leaving Anfield, it was hit by a missile.
When asked if he thought the rivalry between the two clubs had turned toxic, Guardiola said, “I don’t think so.” I’m pretty sure of that from our side.”
City hosts Brighton on Saturday. They are second in the Premier League table.
