Man City boss Guardiola reacts to controversial Wolves goal

EPL By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 25/08/2018

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has reacted to Willy Boly’s controversial goal in the 1-1 scored draw with Wolves at Molineux Stadium.

The promoted side opened the scoring when French defender went to head the ball but missed and it was bundled in off his hand before Aymeric Laporte equalized with just over 20 minutes remaining.

"It was a very good point. We created chances but their keeper made saves, so today we draw. We knew how good they were this season.

"No complaints. We were in the second half four, five, six times in attack, but it’s always complicated. We created a lot, that’s why it’s good.

"In the first half Aguero hit the post, sometimes it goes in, sometimes not. It’s just we were not solid defensively today. That is why we conceded a few chances to them but in general the game, considering the quality of the opponent, was good. We have to give credit.

"Since I arrived three seasons ago we knew how complicated it is and everything, the team was ready especially when we conceded our first goal, the reaction was good. They are fast, strong, good midfield players, I am really surprised how good we played in our build-up but in the end we could not convert.”

On the decision to allow Boly’s goal to stand, Guardiola added: “Well, it’s not my business. So I’m not referee.”

Manchester City host Newcastle United in their next Premier League fixture on Saturday before the international break.
