Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was not happy with the conduct of Yerry Mina during Manchester City’s 3-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday and told the Everton centre-back so after the game.
Mina was involved in a number of confrontations with City players, including a first-half incident with Aymeric Laporte that saw the referee involved. At the end of the match, Guardiola went onto the pitch to speak to the Everton centre-back before also having a conversation with his team-mate Connor Coady.
“It is not necessary what he does, with everyone,” Guardiola said of Mina. “It’s a football game, it is not necessary to do what he does every single game. I told him you are a good enough player to not have to do that.
“This is not about the physical. Not mental either. There are things it is not necessary to do and he does them all the time.”
