Pep Guardiola Teases Mikel Arteta While Man City Fumes Over Referee Decision in Tottenham Draw
Pep Guardiola refrains from making a comment similar to Mikel Arteta’s as Manchester City expresses frustration over a referee decision in the draw against Tottenham.
Arteta is currently facing an FA charge for his VAR-related rant after Arsenal’s defeat to Newcastle.
After a last-minute header from Dejan Kulusevski earned Spurs a point, City believed they were denied a winning goal when Jack Grealish’s opportunity was interrupted by a referee error. Guardiola, when asked about the incident, avoids making a comment resembling Arteta’s, expressing his bewilderment at the referee’s actions and emphasizing the good performance by City.
Guardiola acknowledges the referee’s decision during the build-up to Grealish’s potential winning goal, expressing confusion about the timing of the whistle after initially signaling to play on. Despite the disappointment, Guardiola refrains from criticizing the referees excessively, recognizing that mistakes can happen and emphasizing the positive aspects of City’s performance.
While Guardiola refrains from intense criticism, he points out the peculiar timing of the whistle, questioning why it was blown after initially signaling to play on. He reflects on the game as a whole, acknowledging the enjoyment it brought, even though City fell short of securing the deserved outcome.
In contrast to Arteta’s recent comments on officiating, Guardiola maintains a composed stance, attributing the referee’s decision to human error rather than questioning the standard of refereeing. Guardiola remains focused on the upcoming game at Villa Park and looks forward to the challenges ahead.


Mikel Arteta, currently under scrutiny for his remarks on officiating, criticized the standard of referees following Arsenal’s defeat to Newcastle, labeling the decision to award Anthony Gordon’s winning goal as “embarrassing” and a “disgrace.” Arteta awaits the FA’s decision on the potential punishment for his comments.
