Pep Guardiola became somewhat ruffled by the line of questioning of a journalist in his press conference after Bayern Munich had been held by Manchester United in the Champions League, with the Bavarians’ manager telling the reporter to “look at me when I talk to you.”
Bayern Munich and Manchester United played out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the first leg of their last eight tie, with Nemanja Vidic having opened the scoring before Bastian Schweinsteiger notched a vital away goal.
Somewhat predictably, Bayern dominated the night’s statistics as Manchester United were content to allow their opponents to have the ball, with the Bundesliga champions enjoying 74 percent possession and having 16 shots on David de Gea’s goal.
Guardiola conceded his side found it difficult to break down the Manchester United defences as David Moyes deployed ‘nine players inside the box’, but rejected the assertion that his counterpart had employed negative tactics.
The former Barcelona manager was clearly irked by the suggestion that he would criticise Manchester United for the way they had set-up, and was quick to rebuke the journalist who had posed the question.
After dismissing the idea, an irritated Guardiola said: “Look at me when I talk to you. I'm talking to you, but you don't look at me - you look elsewhere."
