UEFA Charge Guardiola, Liverpool After UCL Tie

Europe’s football governing body UEFA have charged Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola with improper conduct after he was sent off during Tuesday’s Champions League defeat by Liverpool.

According to the BBC Sport, UEFA have also charged Liverpool after fireworks were set off and objects thrown inside Etihad Stadium.

The improper conduct charge against Guardiola is for communicating with the bench during the second half after he was sent to the stands.

Guardiola was sent off after confronting referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz on the pitch at half-time during the quarter-final second-leg 2-1 defeat.

The former Barcelona boss went on to the pitch to challenge Lahoz after Leroy Sane had a goal disallowed for offside, despite replays showing Liverpool midfielder James Milner got the final touch through to the City winger.

Article 69 of UEFA’s disciplinary regulations states that any manager or coach who is sent off may not communicate “directly or indirectly with the team’s players and/or technical staff during the match”.

His case will be heard on 31 May.
Liverpool were already facing four UEFA charges over the setting off of fireworks, throwing of objects, acts of damage and crowd disturbances after City’s team bus was attacked at Anfield prior to the first-leg on 5 April.

Their case will also be heard on 31 May.
