Pep Guardiola kicking a bottle at the Leeds bench and rushing over to say sorry is genuinely hilarious

Pep Guardiola kicking a bottle at the Leeds bench and rushing over to say sorry is genuinely hilarious

Guardiola's antics went viral on social media.

Pep Guardiola let his emotions get the better of him during Manchester City's 3-1 win over Leeds United - which saw him kick a bottle into the Leeds technical area.

The City manager was as animated as ever on the touchline at Elland Road on Wednesday evening.

City looked relatively comfortable throughout the game, thanks to a first-half goal from Rodri and a brace from Erling Haaland.

Pascal Struijk got Leeds back in it with 17 minutes to go and Jesse Marsch's side managed to create a few more chances.

Joe Gelhardt came close to making it 3-2, while Sam Greenwood wasted a glorious chance from a free-kick.

Guardiola cut a frustrated figure after seeing his team turn possession over to a hungry and energetic Leeds team more and more frequently.

He threw his bottle to the ground in anger and seconds later, booted it with plenty of force. Guardiola clearly needs to focus on his aim.

The Spaniard sent it flying into the home dugout as his City players watched on from the bench. Realising what he'd done, Guardiola ran over with his head in his hands to apologise.

City are second in the Premier League, five points behind league leaders Arsenal who defeated West Ham United 3-1 on Monday.

They'll have no problem keeping pace with the Gunners if Haaland continues his incredible goalscoring form. The 22-year-old scored his 19th and 20th league goals of the season, meaning he's hit the 20-goal mark quicker than any other player in history.

Haaland's had a month off following Norway's failure to qualify for the World Cup. Guardiola thinks being able to work on his fitness gives Haaland an extra level to work towards.

Post-match, he explained: "I think he is still not at his best because of the injury, to move his huge body is not easy for him but as much as he can play, minutes will be better.

"I had the feeling he is not at his best. It is a matter of time. [He is] always an incredible threat for the opponent.

"The numbers are unbelievable but I have the feeling he is not just coming here for the numbers, he wants to win it. Still there are 70 points to play for."
