Guardiola 'angry' with Rodri for unnecessary red card
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admitted he was angry with Rodri for being sent off in the 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest.
City managed to hold on with 10 men in the second half to continue their perfect start to the Premier League season.
Rodri saw red for violent conduct after grabbing Morgan Gibbs-White around the throat and now faces a three-match ban that rules him out of City's crucial clash away at title rivals Arsenal on October 8.
Guardiola said: "Hopefully Rodri will learn.
"He had to control himself and his emotions. I can get a yellow card but Rodri can't. I don't play — the guys who do have to be careful.
"Kyle has done this in the past — they know they shouldn't do it — but it is emotions.
"Whatever happens, you have to control yourself. I am angry, because I don't like playing with 10 men."
Referee Anthony Taylor booked 10 other players and also showed a yellow card to Guardiola.
The Catalan coach criticised Taylor for his failure to control the game.
Pep added: "The game was incredibly perfect for 35 minutes for both sides but after that, when it became chaos, it was not our responsibility, that is for sure.
"With all the yellow cards, the responsibility is not Nottingham Forest or City's that's for sure.
'The referee has changed the game, absolutely."
Guardiola also said that Rodri had apologised to his team-mates for his red card, which will also see him miss league games against Wolves and Brighton.
