The second-leg defeat saw the Spaniard’s side exit the European club competition 5-1 on aggregate. UEFA said the charges against Manchester City were “Josep Guardiola – Dismissal from the bench … Improper conduct of the coach”.Liverpool also didn’t escape, with UEFA listing charges of “setting off of fireworks” and “throwing of objects”.This case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on May 31, it added.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
