Champions League: Man City boss Pep Guardiola and Liverpool charged by Uefa

Latest news

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been charged with improper conduct and being sent off during Tuesday’s Champions League defeat by Liverpool.

    European governing body Uefa has also charged Liverpool after fireworks were set off and objects thrown inside Etihad Stadium.

    Guardiola was sent to the stands after confronting referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz on the pitch at half-time during the quarter-final second-leg 2-1 defeat.

    The case will be heard on 31 May.

    The improper conduct charge against Guardiola is for communicating with the bench during the second half.

    Article 69 of Uefa’s disciplinary regulations states that any manager or coach who is sent off may not communicate “directly or indirectly with the team’s players and/or technical staff during the match”.
