Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola recently threw a jibe at Premier League (PL) rivals, Liverpool, after claiming his team was not responsible for Steven Gerrard’s slip against Chelsea, an incident which made the Reds miss out on a league trophy.
Guardiola, who believes other PL teams are jealous of his side’s achievements in the past years and want them kicked out of the Premier League, has continued to lambast them.
The Spaniard accused clubs in the English top flight of pushing for Man City to be punished for breaching financial regulations.
He also claimed the other 19 Premier League clubs are behind the over 100 charges they were slammed with last week for breaking the competition’s Financial Fair Play rules.
The bulk of the new Premier League charges cover a period from 2009-18.
The Citizens are currently being investigated and could be slammed with points deductions, transfer embargoes, being stripped of titles or even expulsion from the competition.
Guardiola, addressing the perceived gang-up, said: “Come on, they[the titles] belong to us. Absolutely, they belong to us. Regardless of the sentence, they belong to us.
“The moment from Sergio Aguero, with Balotelli slipping him in… I don’t know if we are responsible for Steven Gerrard slipping. In that situation at Anfield I didn’t want that, for respect for Steven Gerrard, but is it our fault? Come on. That belongs to us…”
Man City are currently second on the Premier League table and can leapfrog lead leaders, Arsenal, if they win their home game against Aston Villa and midweek fixture against the Gunners.
