Video: Pep Guardiola snubs Ilkay Gundogan handshake after penalty miss despite match winning brace

Posted by

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, was left fuming during their hard-fought 2-1 win over Leeds United.

Ilkay Gundogan scored two brilliant goals in the first half to give City a comfortable lead at half time.

He had an opportunity to score a hat-trick and seal the victory for City late in the second half when Foden was fouled inside the penalty box.

City’s star striker and designated penalty-taker, Erling Haaland, offered Gundogan the opportunity to take the spot-kick. Unfortunately, Gundogan failed to convert from the spot, and Leeds United went on to score at the other end that set up a nail-biting finish.

Guardiola was seen fuming at both Haaland and Gundogan, venting his frustration at the pair.

He was seen yelling at Haaland immediately after the penalty miss for abdicating his responsibility. He also seen snubbed Gundogan when he was substituted.

It was a nervy finish for City, and Guardiola’s anger at his players’ mistakes was apparent.

Watch the incident below:

The reaction is perhaps too harsh considering the German scored both the goals that ultimately won them the game.
