Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has said he did not intentionally snub Pep Guardiola’s post-match handshake, after Manchester City won 6-0 at the Etihad on Sunday.
After the full-time whistle, the Italian walked straight past Guardiola’s outstretched hand and down the tunnel, with assistant Gianfranco Zola having to placate the Spaniard instead.
Speaking to Sky Sports later on, Sarri insists he was too keen to return to the dressing room.
“I didn’t see him at the time but I will go to say hello to him later, as usual.
“I wanted to go to the dressing room and in the moment I didn’t see him. I have no problem with him,” he said
Guardiola also insisted he had no issue with Sarri, after his stormed down the tunnel.
“I just spoke with Zola, Sarri didn’t see me.
“I have a great relationship with him, no problem,” Guardiola said.
