‘I’m ashamed’ Man City manager Pep Guardiola apologizes to Steven Gerrard and his family following controversial comment

Pep Guardiola left apologetic ahead of the most anticipated top-of-the-table clash against Arsenal after his initial comments on Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard on Friday.

The Man City manager attended the press conference on Tuesday and admitted that he felt ashamed following his unnecessary comment about the iconic player which he could have avoided.

“I apologize to Steven Gerrard for my unnecessary stupid comments about him. He knows how I admire him and his career, and what he has done for this country. I am ashamed of myself, he doesn’t deserve it.”-Guardiola told to the reporters.

Earlier, Guardiola was furious about the interventions of the other PL clubs to the ongoing accusation of them with alleged breaching of regulations with more than 100 charges against them.

“They want the position of the UCL for the big amount of money to pay for the stadiums they built, so it’s okay. The other clubs are jealous and judge us. I don’t know if we are responsible for Steven Gerrard’s famous slip too. Maybe.”-Pep Guardiola said earlier.

Liverpool was not happy at all following the disrespect shown by the Spanish-born manager to their Club hero and the football fans were shocked after hearing such a horrendous comment.

Steven Gerrard is widely considered an icon of Liverpool Football Club where he spent his entire professional career, playing for the club from 1998 to 2015, and during that time he became one of the greatest players in the team’s history.

Gerrard won a total of 11 trophies with Liverpool, including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup, three League Cups, and two FA Cups while also helping Liverpool finish as runners-up in the Premier League three times.

Pep Guardiola, however, rectified his mistake and apologized to the 42-year-old English and Liverpool legend will certainly ease the situation a bit while All Reds will look to extend the winning form they picked up against Everton.
