Pep Guardiola’s hand was not shaken by Mauricio Pochettino

Chelsea and Manchester City played an thriller on Sunday.

Emotions were running high both on and off the pitch after Chelsea and Manchester City’s thrilling 4-4 tie, as Mauricio Pochettino was spotted sprinting onto the ground after the final whistle. The cameras show an enraged Pochettino directing his rage at referee Anthony Taylor for making dubious calls towards the end of the game. The manager was given a yellow card, but it didn’t stop him from expressing his displeasure.

On Sunday, the Premier League witnessed an instant classic at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea faced Manchester City, who were not known for dropping points on the road. In what developed into an eight-goal thriller, either side ended up sharing the spoils on the night.

The game featured seven different scores, but it was former Manchester City midfielder Cole Palmer who stole the show with a late equalizer for Chelsea. Following the game, Pochettino apologized to Pep Guardiola for not taking the time to shake his hand. Managers typically shake hands following the full-time whistle. And after a game like that, where neither side was able to catch a break, there were even more reasons to hug the differences away.

Pep Guardiola told reporters that was ‘no problem,’ referring to Pochettino’s refusal to shake hands after the game. He also stated that these ’emotions’ occur in him and that he has experienced them.
