The coaches joined the battle for the substitution rule. City coach Pep raved about Sky Sports afterwards: “At the end I spoke to Jürgen about the fact that we have to fight for the five substitutions over and over. Five substitutions are allowed all over the world. But here we think we are special. We don’t protect the players. “
He also said the current situation was a “disaster”. Speaking of the match itself, he simply said: “It’s not easy to defend Liverpool. It’s not easy to play against them. Unfortunately we missed the penalty.”
