Pep Guardiola tells Borussia Dortmund to keep quiet while trailing by 35 points
Pep Guardiola has hit back at Borussia Dortmund's Sebastian Kehl after the player mocked the Bundesliga champions for missing their penalties in the DFB-Pokal semi-finals. Kehl’s comment came after they defeated Bayern Munich in the penalties where they missed all four.
Kehl had the following to say: “If Bayern can’t take penalties, they have to practice them. I think that it’s crazy Bayern now try to put the blame on the referee. They’ve done it quite often when getting defeated by us.”
His comment came after Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the CEO of Bayern Munich complained over the refereeing in the match, saying: “we played against 12 men today”.
Guardiola who is generally calm and composed, responded in an angry manner saying: “when you’re trailing by more than 35 points [in the Bundesliga], you should …”. At which point he pressed his finger on his lips suggesting that Dortmund kept quiet.
He finished of saying: “Now we have time to practice since we’re already champions.”
Bayern Munich have won their third Bundesliga title in a row after Wolfsburg lost to Borussia Mönchengladbach on Sunday.
