Pep Guardiola initiates mind games by highlighting the referee’s decision about the right-back from Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has issued a cautionary message to his players in anticipation of the significant encounter against Liverpool. He has instructed them to remain focused on their game and not allow the Anfield crowd or any decisions made by the referee to divert their attention.

Prior to Sunday’s highly anticipated title showdown against Liverpool, there has been a significant amount of discussion, particularly following Trent Alexander-Arnold’s insinuation that Liverpool’s triumphs hold greater significance than those of Manchester City, owing to the contrasting financial circumstances of the two teams. Although Guardiola refrained from publicly addressing these remarks, Erling Haaland and Rúben Dias did respond, while Jürgen Klopp backed his player.

Guardiola also made an indirect allusion to the situation. His press presentation was replete with subtle psychological tactics in anticipation of the monumental match. Guardiola explicitly expressed his indifference for the opinions of others regarding his team.
