Man City Champions League Exit: Pep Guardiola Names His One Regret

Man City Champions League Exit

Pep Guardiola has lamented Fernando Llorente's winning goal for Tottenham as Manchester City suffered another painful Champions League exit.

After being robbed of a crucial goal against Liverpool last season when VAR could have been used, the referee last night did use the newly-implemented technology to have a look at Llorente's goal but decided that the original decision would stand.

The City manager, who is a keen advocate of VAR, suggested that the referee had not seen the right replays when making his decision.

“I support VAR. It is just to see the goal maybe from Llorente is handball,” he said.

“From one angle it is a handball. From the angle the referee saw it is not so but I am for fair football, for fair decisions.

“The referees must be helped sometimes. When it is offside, it is offside.

“What can I say? I think in the future, and even in the present it will be fair and that is all.”
