Guardi­ola em­pa­thy for dis­missed Mane

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

PRE­MIER LEAGUE: Manchester City thrashed 10man Liver­pool 5-0 in an event­ful clash at the Eti­had Sta­dium, where Reds for­ward Sa­dio Mane was con­tro­ver­sially sent off in the first half.

Pep Guardi­ola had some sym­pa­thy with Mane, who was sent off in the 37th minute with Liver­pool trail­ing to Ser­gio Aguero’s 24th-minute goal.

“The ac­tion is hard. I can­not think a player like Mane is go­ing to make hard (con­tact) to the face so I think he fol­lowed the ball but the ac­tion is dan­ger­ous. I don’t know if it is red card or not,” said the City boss.

City took full ad­van­tage with Gabriel Je­sus scor­ing twice and sub­sti­tute Leroy Sane adding two of his own late on.
