Pep Guardiola apologises for Steven Gerrard ‘slip’ joke

Posted by

Pep Guardiola has apologised for making a joke about Steven Gerrard’s infamous 2014 slip for Liverpool in the Premier League.

The Spaniard made the joke two days ago in reference to the suggestion that Manchester City’s previous title wins could be wiped out in the midst of the club’s FFP breach accusations.

City have been accused of over 100 breaches of Financial Fair Play between 2009 and 2018, with the club and fans sweating over what the punishment could be f they are indeed found guilty.

Now, the City boss has made the decision to say sorry for his Gerrard joke, saying it was a silly one to make.

I want to apologise to Steven Gerarrd for the unnecessary and stupid comments I made about him.

He knows how much I admire what he’s done for this country and I am ashamed of myself for what I said.

I’ve apologised to him personally but I want to do it here as well.”

Hopefully Gerrard can forgive the City manager and Guardiola moves on from his actions surrounding the matter which had put him under so much scrutiny over the past couple of days.
