"First of all you have to learn from the game, so I have no problem with conceding the early goal - of course it's not what you want, but if it happens then you have to react", he said.

Pep Guardiola criticised the officials after Manchester City's chastening Champions League quarter-final defeat against Liverpool.

Speaking just after the final whistle to BT Sport, Guardiola said the referee overreacted in sending him to the stands.

"That is why so many people think they can win the Champions League, and I am sure Klopp does too".

Protests continued after the half-time whistle with Guardiola entering the field and exchanging words with Lahoz.

"When the teams are so equal the impact of these decisions is so big".

"We didn't play great in the two games, but we congratulate Liverpool".

Jurgen Klopp's side were in danger of blowing the lead against City after falling 1-0 down at Eastlands on Tuesday while trying to protect a 3-0 first leg advantage.

"We've had 10 wonderful months". They're a good team, they're always going to put you under pressure, we knew that.

"I would say the exception has been the 10 months - winning, winning, winning - that is exceptional".

"It was all positive, there was nothing negative, but I needed to remind the guys that we had 50 minutes to be in the semi-finals of the Champions League and we needed to give more".

Ever since their German manager Juergen Klopp took charge at Anfield 2-1/2 years ago, critics have questioned whether his team have the necessary defensive nous to go with their devastating forward line. "You have to analyse game by game". After such a hard start, it's a great lesson for life. "This wonderful goal that we served them on a plate", he said.

"I was shouting a bit at half-time".

It was Liverpool whose approach turned out to be ideal in the circumstances as they followed up their staunch first-half defending to deliver the decisive blows.

"It's not about perfection it's about the result, the character, the mentality, really fighting for the result. I'm definitely confident that next season we can push everyone, even ourselves, to do better from the beginning to the end".
