Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has confirmed that he apologized to Steven Gerrard for his comments about the former Liverpool midfielder’s slip in 2014, which helped them win the Premier League title.
Guardiola questioned Gerrard’s error last week, asking, “Was that our fault?” in response to the club’s alleged financial regulations violations.
However, Man City manager Pep Guardiola has now publicly apologized to Gerrard after doing so privately.
“I apologise to Steven Gerrard for my unnecessary and stupid comments I said last time about him,” he said.
“He knows how I admire him and his career, what he has done for this country where I’m living and training. I am ashamed of myself for what I said because he doesn’t deserve it. I truly believe in my comments in my previous press conference to defend my club but I didn’t represent my club well putting his name in these stupid comments.
“I apologised to him personally but I have to do it here as well. I’m so sorry for him, for Alex his wife, kids, family because it was stupid.”
