“I didn’t see at that moment,” the Blues boss said. “But of course as usually I will go to say hello to him later, as usual.

“It was by chance because I wanted to go to the dressing room at that moment, and I didn’t see him. I don’t have a problem with Pep.”

When asked on Sky Sports about the incident, Guardiola played it down saying: “He didn’t see me. I have a good relationship with him, no problem.”
