Premier League: Guardiola’s sincere apology to Gerrard: ‘I’m ashamed of myself’


sep Guardiola spoke at a preview of tomorrow’s match against Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta. “Gunners” are still ahead with a three-point advantage over “Cityzens”, and one match less than Pep. The match seems decisive in facing the struggle for the English Premier League 2022/23.

“I apologize to Steven Gerrard for my unnecessary and stupid comments I made about him last time. I am ashamed of myself.”Because he doesn’t deserve it…”. This is how Guardiola’s press conference began, who apologized for what he said about Gerrard a few days ago, joking about this slip-up that “cost” Liverpool as prime minister. And he adds: “He knows how much I admire him and his career. I’m ashamed of myself because he doesn’t deserve it. I didn’t represent my team well.”

I apologized to Gerrard privately, but since the comment was public, my apology should also be public.

Additionally, Pep spoke about Arsenal, his next Premier League rival: “So far they are the best team in the Premier League. We know it’s going to be a tough game for weeks. It’s going to be a great, great fight.”

In terms of City’s moment, he qualifies ahead of those who think the Manchester club is on some kind of roller coaster: “I don’t think a week ago we were in bad shape and now we’re back. Every game is differentYou can play well and win and everything is fine, but tomorrow you can lose. There are many games to play. Tomorrow is important and everyone knows that… I have a feeling that many things could happen. Tomorrow can help us be closer but there are many games, many…”.

The boss managed a poor run of results to get back into the fight with Arteta’s side, which seemed insurmountable: “Listen, after Arsenal [en la FA Cup, ed.]And There was this union, the boys are amazing human beings, I have no complaints. We all make mistakes, me first. Humor is very, very good for many years … Sometimes you have to tweak the little things to understand things differently. We are happy to be together.”
