Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne were involved in a heated exchange during Manchester City’s 4-0 thrashing of Real Madrid.

Guardiola lost his cool with De Bruyne at one point during the second half as the Belgian playmaker squandered possession.

De Bruyne did not take kindly to the touchline input from his manager and was caught on camera screaming “shut up, shut up” back in the direction of the City dugout.

On seeing De Bruyne deliver an angry response to the technical area and why he felt the need to deliver such advice in the midst of a heavyweight continental clash, Guardiola told Movistar: “At 2-0 we rushed a lot.

“Right after the break [Ilkay] Gundogan lost a ball, Kevin made three transitions that weren’t necessary and we rushed a lot when we had to do the opposite, sink them and turn them, sink them and turn them. But it’s normal. It gets close, you rush, and it has cost us more, although in general we have had an extraordinary game.”
