“I don’t know what happened,” Guardiola told Sky Sports after the game. “I heard something from the crowd – something not nice to staff. But I don’t know what exactly. I didn’t see the images.

“I’m pretty sure that if it happened, I’m sure Liverpool will take measures about this person. Liverpool are much greater than this behaviour.

“Nothing will change my admiration for this club. It was the same story two, three years ago when we came here and they destroyed our bus – it is certain people, not just Liverpool.”
