Guardiola rattled by battling United

GUARDIOLAMADMANCHESTER, April 2 – Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola showed flashes of frustration after the defending champions were held 1-1 at Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Bastian Schweinsteiger cancelled out Nemanja Vidic’s opener in Tuesday’s game to put Bayern in control of the tie, but the Bayern midfielder was then sent off, ruling him out of next week’s return leg.

Schweinsteiger was shown a second yellow card in the final minute for sliding in on Wayne Rooney and Guardiola reacted by appearing to make a ‘dive’ gesture at the United forward.

Centre-back Javi Martinez will also miss the second leg on April 9 after being booked for a foul on Javier Hernandez and Guardiola afterwards expressed dissatisfaction with Spanish referee Carlos Velasco Carballo.

“I spoke with the referee, and he knows my opinion,” Guardiola said.

“He gave me his opinion, and huge hug, and, ‘Have a safe trip to Spain.'”
