Guardiola avoids FA charge after ref confrontation following Man City defeat to Liverpool

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will not face an FA charge after approaching referee Michael Oliver after Sunday's 3-1 defeat for City against Liverpool, reports Sky Sports.

Guardiola confronted the referee at the final whistle following his side's loss at Anfield, sarcastically saying "thank you very much" to Oliver and his officials, after key decisions went against City during the game.

Speaking after the loss for City, Guardiola insisted he was prouder than ever of his side and said "ask Mike Riley and the guys in VAR" about the controversial decisions.
