PERDANA SPORT – Man City vs West Brom: Guardiola Grumbles What is it to the Fourth Official?. Pep Guardiola was caught grumbling at the fourth official on the sidelines as Manchester City hosted West Bromwich Albion. What protest, Pep?
The moment of protest was caught on camera at the end of the Manchester City vs West Bromwich Albion match at the Etihad, Wednesday (16/12/2020) in the morning WIB. The Premier League match itself ended 1-1.
Ilkay Guendogan’s goal in the 30th minute was equalized by West Brom through Ruben Dias’ own goal. The score was then maintained by Slaven Bilic’s squad until the game was over.
Shortly before normal time ran out, or rather when the fourth official, Anthony Taylor, was about to show the injury time, Guardiola seemed to approach and protest. The incident went on for a long time, but the Manchester City manager was lucky enough not to be punished by the referee.
Apparently Guardiola protested about the duration of injury time. He felt the four minutes given was not enough to make up for lost time due to a number of incidents in the middle of the game.
