Guardiola hit with UEFA charge after Man City Champions League exit

Pep Guardiola

MANCHESTER CITY crashed out of the Champions League after a 2-1 defeat at home to Liverpool tonight saw them lose 5-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals - here are our player ratings for City.

Guardiola was forced to watch the second half from the stands after being sent off for his protestations at the break as free-spending City's dreams of conquering the Champions League for the first time were dashed for another season.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Salah reflected: "I think the [his] goal was at a good time for us because they were pressing very high and had many chances, so in the beginning we struggled a little bit because they scored in the first two minutes".

The finishing blow put Liverpool up 5-1 on aggregate, further confirming Liverpool's place in the semi-finals.

"The boys found a solution". Angry managers are not good managers, if they are angry all the time.

We went into Tuesday's second leg with a mountain to climb having suffered a 3-0 defeat at Anfield six days earlier, but a superb first-half display gave hope of a recovery.

"I said [to Lahoz] it was a goal, I didn't insult him", Guardiola said.

And Liverpool's extra courage paid off 12 minutes into the second period as the Reds grabbed the all-important tie-ending away goal.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand added that the 19-year-old's performance was better than City's own English right-back, Kyle Walker.

Early in the second half, it became clear that Liverpool had composed themselves and that City would not be able to continue at the same breathless pace.

"The ball [for Sane] came from [James] Milner".

Salah also hit in the qualifying phase against Hoffenheim, although that strike does not count towards his tally as only goals in the competition proper are taken into consideration. "I didn't say any wrong word".

It was the latest Champions League failure by City manager Pep Guardiola, who won the competition twice with Barcelona - in 2009 and '11 - but hasn't reached the final since in five season with Bayern Munich and City.

There were unwanted records for Sane and City boss Pep Guardiola, and Salah was setting more records for Liverpool.

In an Instagram message he wrote: "Champions League - could you guys start using the VAR system next season?".

Come May 26 in Kiev he may, at last, be able to down a beer or three should Liverpool fulfil his personal ambition and restore the term European giants to their name.
