Pep Guardiola was left furious at the usual of refereeing in Manchester Town’s FA Cup win as he expected Leroy Sane may spend 3 weeks on the sidelines after a horror tackle.
Targets from Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling saw Town properly prior Cardiff City in Sunday’s fourth spherical fit in the Welsh capital.
That victory used to be soured, on the other hand, by means of Sane’s withdrawal prior to part time following an uncongenial studs-up challenge perpetrated via Joe Bennett.
Bennett most effective gained a booking for the hit earlier than later seeing pink for a separate offence, and Pep – who used to be noticed having a heated change with officials at complete-time – believes Lee Mason used to be a long way too lenient in his refereeing.
“I don’t keep in mind the (Bernardo) purpose that we didn’t get, however that may be k. we can accept that. But they have got to protect the avid gamers,” Pep told newshounds after the overall whistle.
“They refs are there to give protection to the players. While there is fault, there may be fault, and whilst it is unhealthy, it is dangerous.

“We Will Be Able To see Sane’s injury day after today, he could be out for two, 3, 4 weeks.”
It was not just Guardiola who used to be involved through Cardiff’s harsh tackling both, with the German nationwide team having taken to Twitter at half time to invite the Welsh facet to be more careful with their tackling sooner than Die Mannschaft’s participation within the Global Cup.
