Pep Guardiola:‘Thank you so much’ to ref was not sarcastic

Pep Guardiola insisted he was not being sarcastic when he shook the hand of the referee after Manchester City’s 3-1 defeat at Liverpool.

The City boss appeared to thank Michael Oliver for his performance in a theatrical way after the final whistle at Anfield.

Guardiola had been enraged during the Premier League clash as his side were twice denied penalties for possible handballs against Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The first was the most controversial, coming immediately before opened the scoring.

The second came late on as City rallied in response to further goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
