Pep Guardiola issues spiky response to Kyle Walker and Neal Maupay incident at Brentford



| Last Updated:


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola refused to discuss an incident involving Kyle Walker and Neal Maupay during the 1-3 win at Brentford on Monday night.

The Brentford forward – who had initially put his side ahead against the reigning Champions – put himself at the centre of yet more controversy in the clash with Manchester City after engaging in what appeared to be a heated argument with City captain Kyle Walker.

The latest moment of frustration from Maupay comes just one week on from outrage surrounding a darts-inspired goal celebration against Tottenham, while Monday’s incident appeared to leave Walker enraged with a comment towards the end of the contest.

The England international, who has been at the centre of tabloid newspaper reports concerning his private life in recent days, had to be calmed down by his manager Pep Guardiola following an exchange of words with his opponent.

Speaking to the media after the contest, Guardiola was asked by one journalist as to whether he could provide any details on an incident involving the Manchester City captain and Brentford forward Neal Maupay.

“Nothing, next question,” Guardiola said. When pushed for an answer on the same subject immediately after, the City manager continued, “No. I said, next question. I won’t talk about that.”

Kyle Walker and his Manchester City teammates return to action with another Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon as part of an action-packed February schedule that will also see them compete in a further two competitions.

An FA Cup fifth round tie against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road is pencilled in for a midweek date later on this month, whilst the first-leg of the club’s UEFA Champions League last-16 match-up with FC Copenhagen is set to take place next week.
