Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has slammed the match officials for their game against Brighton on Wednesday night.

The Spaniard was left exasperated after Erling Haaland’s potential late winner was ruled out during the game.

Manchester City played out a 1-1 draw at the Amex on Wednesday night and the result ensures the home side qualified for Europa League for next season.

Phil Foden opened the scoring for the Citizens before Julio Enciso levelled for Roberto de Zerbi’s side.

However, the Premier League champions scored what many thought would have been the winning goal by Haaland with just over 10 minutes remaining.

However, VAR advised referee Simon Hooper to review the goal on the pitch-side and Haaland was adjudged to have pulled the shirt of defender Levi Colwill.

“If it is a fault, there are 25 faults to every defender when they make a long ball. If it is a fault, every time it is a fault.

“Come on. It is ridiculous. The goal disallowed is ridiculous but it doesn’t matter,” he said.
