Guardiola slams new rule as Arsenal win Community Shield

Man City finally set to announce Haaland capture, by activating his release clause

Following Sunday’s thrilling shootout victory for Arsenal at Wembley, manager of Manchester City Pep Guardiola criticized alterations to the officiating.

Cole Palmer gave City the lead in the 77th minute, but Leandro Trossard equalized in the 11th minute of extra time when Manuel Akanji’s effort deflected off of him.

The last eight minutes of the game were first added by referee Stuart Attwell, but it was prolonged further when Kyle Walker and Thomas Partey collided at that time.

Referees have been told to add extra time for any in-game delays in order to reduce time-wasting.

He said: “It is not annoying; we have to get used to it. I had the feeling, not because we were winning 1-0, it was just the fact I had the feeling that much didn’t happen to extend by eight minutes.

“But it is a good question for the [rule-making International Football Association Board] and all the people because they don’t consult the managers; they don’t consult the players.

“Whatever their opinion, we have to accept it. Now the games will be 100 minutes, that’s for sure.”
