Last week Pep Guardiola spoke to the media ahead of Manchester City vs Aston Villa.
We are responsible for Steven Gerrard’s slipping”, he said ironically.
Guardiola bizarrely referred to Gerrard as he continues to defend Manchester City.
Guardiola has apologised for his comments and said he “feels ashamed” of himself.
“I apologise to Steven Gerrard for my unnecessary and stupid comments I said last time about him. I am ashamed of myself, because he doesn’t deserve it.”
“I didn’t represent my club well putting his name in these stupid comments. I am so sorry to him, his kids, wife, family. It was stupid.”
