Sterling: What Pep Told Me In Post-FA Cup Rant

Despite Raheem Sterling's brace in Manchester City's 6-0 FA Cup final win on the weekend, Pep Guardiola was seen shouting at the winger after the final whistle, and the Englishman has now seemingly revealed what the coach told him.

Click through the gallery above to see some images from City's FA Cup celebrations on Saturday.

Guardiola's side celebrated a historic domestic treble after steamrolling Watford in the FA Cup final to lift their third trophy of the season – four, if you count the FA Community Shield.

Sterling, who scored his side's final two goals in the final, was also involved in the first strike, when he tried to poke Gabriel Jesus' effort over the line from close range.

However, the goal was given to his Brazilian teammate and, after the final whistle, Guardiola passionately reprimanded Sterling for trying to get his name on the scoresheet, according to the player himself.

"He just said I shouldn't have tried to steal that first goal," Sterling wrote on Twitter account in response to a video showing Guardiola arguing with him.
