Guardiola reacts after Sarri snubbed him

PEP GUARDIOLA has spoken out after Maurizio Sarri snubbed his handshake at full-time after Manchester City's 6-0 drubbing of Chelsea.

Manchester City regained their spot atop the Premier League table by inflicting Chelsea's heaviest ever defeat in the competition.

Guardiola was understandably beaming after the final whistle and approached Sarri to conduct the unofficial obligation of a post-match handshake.

Setting his stool out early, the Spanish coach walked towards his saddened counterpart with a visible hand, but Sarri had already made up his mind.

Making a beeline for the tunnel, the 60-year-old did not flinch at the Guardiola, who was a matter of feet away before giving up on the locking of hands.

Instead, the former Barcelona manager found Chelsea assistant coach Gianfranco Zola and shared words with the former striker.

Asked about the incident after the game on Sky Sports, Guardiola played it down, saying: "I spoke with Gianfranco Zola and he (Sarri) didn't see me so I understand. No, no, no."
