Pep Guardiola is being mocked for his comments after Man City vs Liverpool

Pep Guardiola has been mocked for some of his post-match comments about his club's fans.

The Manchester City manager had an eventful afternoon to say the least, being on the touchline to see his side play out a competitive 1-1 draw with Liverpool, then being involved in a small spat with Darwin Nunez.

City took the lead through none other than Erling Haaland in the first half, before having a goal disallowed in the second half for a foul on Alisson from Manuel Akanji.

Trent Alexander-Arnold slotted home the equaliser 10 minutes from time, ensuring the Reds took a point home from the Etihad.

Guardiola made some controversial comments after the full-time whistle that have provoked reactions from numerous fans.

When asked about what he wanted when he was seen riling the crowd up in the second half, he responded: "Some more noise. It's 12:30. Still, we are maybe not ready...a little bit more."

"But maybe we have to play better to encourage them to, you know, to make a little bit more."

The comments come after a clearly frustrated Guardiola gestured to his supporters to increase the noise levels and get behind the players in crunch time.

Another jokingly replied: "it’s hard to make noise when there’s only 7 of them Pep"

A different user said: "The one thing money can’t buy. Maybe play crowd noise on the speakers?"

It seemed like the drama continued after the final whistle, as Guardiola also commented on his clash with Darwin Nunez after the game, telling The Echo: "He's just stronger than me! It's not frustration, I'm really pleased. The second question, you ask that? Maybe the last question. I am incredibly please. We know how tough they are.”

The result may not be the most ideal for the Citizens, but they remain top of the Premier League table just one point clear of Liverpool.
