Coach Pep Guardiola expressed dissatisfaction with the behavior of Yerry Mina in the match between Everton and Man City last.
In a corner situation, Yerry Mina pinched Aymeric Laporte while tracking. The Man City defender turned around and hit Mina’s arm and the player rolled onto the field and appeared to be in great pain. In this match, Mina also repeatedly used tricks with Man City’s attacking players such as Erling Haaland or Phil Foden.
At the end of the match, coach Pep Guardiola exchanged words with Yerry Mina. All the Man City players also refused to shake the hand of the Everton defender.
In an interview after the game, Pep Guardiola refused to specify what he did not like about Mina. However, it is clear that Pep does not like the way the Colombian player guides the opponent.
“Mina? What he did was unnecessary. He shouldn’t do that in every game. I told him ‘You’re a good enough player to avoid things like this’. He did unnecessary things, this time with Laporte, Grealish, everyone.”
Pep Guardiola also talked more about Man City’s performance and praised Gundogan.
“We played well from the first minute. I was impressed with the way Everton defended but we played well. Every time we win, we are a little closer to the championship. But there are still tough matches ahead. We are getting closer step by step.
Gundogan is an outstanding player in every way. He can play in different roles. He’s smart. The moving situations are very reasonable, the tempo is suitable. His first goal was also beautiful.”
