“We won. We are so happy.”
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola‘s nerves were frayed after he watched his team overcome a first half red card to topple Burnley 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Monday.
Fernandinho was sent off for the third time this year, this time for a two-footed challenge on Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

Guardiola was very testy in the postmatch interview, asking the media to explain the red card and issuing blunt replies to several questions.
The manager called Man City’s second half “amazing” and then bristled when asked why he didn’t start Sergio Aguero and David Silva — “I did a big mistake. You are right.” — before explaining putting them into the game by saying, “I’m intelligent.”
