Alexis Mac Allister has revealed what was said between Darwin Nunez and Pep Guardiola following their clash on the sideline after Liverpool’s draw with Manchester City. 

Erling Haaland gave City the lead with a well taken finish from the edge of the box before Trent Alexander-Arnold equalised for Liverpool. 

The draw denied Guardiola’s side the chance to break a record held by Sunderland since 1892, having not not lost or drawn a match at the Etihad since New Year’s Eve 2022.

Tensions were running high during and after the game, and Nunez was involved in a scuffle with Guardiola. 

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was forced to get involved and diffuse the situation as both player and manager refused to back down, and now Mac Allister has revealed what was actually said.

The Reds midfielder told Clank!: ‘I imagine Jurgen didn’t understand anything (that was said) after the game, ‘He asked me what I was saying to him, but it was nothing. It was something very minimal.

‘As Jurgen said, they are two very emotional people, both Pep and Darwin, and it was nothing. Some comment that Pep made, Darwin responded to it, but it wasn’t anything out of this world.

‘And that’s why I was laughing too. If I see how serious it is, obviously I wouldn’t laugh in that way. But nothing made me laugh a little like how Darwin got angry so quickly.

‘And apart from that, at the beginning, Pep thought he was doing everything like a joke, and of course Darwin was with him. It had transformed his face a little then.

‘It was kind of a little funny, the whole situation, but those are things that stay there. I think they both respect each other a lot, and nothing was wrong at that moment.’

Mac Allister continued: ‘Yes (Darwin took it seriously and Pep saw it more as a joke). I don’t know if I should tell it but I’m going to tell you (what caused it). Basically, they had a situation.

‘I don’t know if it was a corner or a cross that Haaland headed and the ball went past the goal next to the post. Pep turned around and started saying how lucky we are or something like that.

‘Then it goes to the last bit of play, the ball is crossed into the middle and Lucho Diaz wants to head it and they save it. So then Darwin tells him (Guardiola), ‘ah, now you are the ones who are lucky’.

‘From there, everything went to s**t. But it was very calm. Nothing serious.’
