'I don’t like Pep getting angry like that’ – Sergio Aguero blasts Guardiola for shouting at Mahrez in Real Madrid win
MANCHESTER CITY legend Sergio Aguero has hit out at Pep Guardiola after he raged at Mahrez during their Champions League win against Real Madrid.
Guardiola's side have one foot in reaching back-to-back European Cup finals after beating Los Blancos 4-3 in a pulsating semi-final first leg.
But they should be taking more than just a one-goal margin into their clash at the Bernabeu, with Phil Foden bemoaning his side for not finishing off the Spanish giants.
City, who missed an abundance of chances throughout the match, raced into an early 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus.
And it should have been 3-0 in the 25th minute after De Bruyne sent Mahrez through on goal.
The Algerian ace should have squared for Foden to easily tap home, but he went for glory himself and hit the side netting.

His failure to pass and subsequently miss infuriated Guardiola on the touchline, with the Spaniard jumping out of his seat to shout at the ex-Leicester man.
Just minutes after the spurned opportunity, Karim Benzema halved the deficit with a clinical volley.
City's all-time top scorer Aguero, who retired in December due to a heart condition, was commentating on the enthralling encounter on his Twitch channel.
Discussing Guardiola's angry antics, the 33-year-old said: "I don’t like Pep getting angry like that.

"He scolded Riyad. I hope he scores a goal.
"Once against Tottenham I got angry with Pep and we yelled in each other’s faces."
Newcastle icon Alan Shearer was also quick to comment on Mahrez's miss, though he agreed Guardiola had a right to be annoyed.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, he remarked: "Riyad Mahrez shouldn't have gone for the top right corner, it's a simple as that.
"If he had picked his head up, he'd have seen that Phil Foden was free to his left and he's got a tap-in.
"Pep Guardiola is going berzerk on the touchline for that exact reason."
