Pep Guardiola claims Maurizio Sarri didn't see him at full-time after Man City 6-0 Chelsea

Manchester City v Chelsea FC - Premier League

Chelsea started the weekend in fourth place in the Premier League.

They will finish it in sixth after being completely embarrassed by Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal picked up three points on Saturday ahead of Chelsea’s trip to the Etihad.

And the champions thrashed Maurizio Sarri’s side 6-0 after being 4-0 ahead after just 25 minutes.

It was a rout and it was simply embarrassing for Chelsea.

In fact, it was so embarrassing that Sarri didn’t even want to face Pep Guardiola at full-time, it seems.

Cameras spotted how the Chelsea boss walked straight past Guardiola at the final whistle, despite the Spaniard holding out his hand for a handshake.

No matter what happens during the 90 minutes, there’s no need for that kind of behaviour.

As you’d expect, Sarri’s assistant Gianfranco Zola was on hand to shake Guardiola’s hand and apologise for Sarri’s actions.

After the match, Guardiola was asked about the incident and claimed that he had been told Sarri hadn’t seen him.

"He didn't see me. I have a good relationship with him, no problem," Guardiola claimed.

Looking at the footage, we find that very hard to believe.

Surely Sarri knows that managers shake hands at the end of every single match!?


Sarri himself was asked about the snub and replied: "I didn't see him at the time but I will go to say hello to him later, as usual. I wanted to go to the dressing room and in the moment I didn't see him. I have no problem with him."

In truth, you can’t blame Sarri for feeling devastated by what he had just seen.

Chelsea’s previous away match was a 4-0 loss at Bournemouth and many believed that it couldn’t get any worse for Sarri and his side.

But losing 6-0 to City may just have eclipsed that.

At least Chelsea don’t have to face City for a whole two weeks yet…
