Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has admitted he was unhappy with his manager’s decision not to let him take a penalty against Liverpool on sunday.
City won a late penalty and Jesus was all set to take the spot kick.
However, boss Pep Guardiola requested that Riyad Mahrez take the penalty instead. Mahrez missed.
After the 0-0 draw, the striker told reporters: “Obviously I’m not happy. As Riyad, I’ve been practising [penalties].
“I would like to have taken it, I was confident, so I was not happy that they did not allow me. However, it was important that we didn’t lose.
“Pep spoke with me. This is part of football, sometimes these things happen. I will support Riyad if the manager chooses him again.”
