Pep Guardiola accuses officials of seeking 'leading roles and Oscars' within football - as Man City boss demands they 'be more humble' after VAR blunder to disallow Luis Diaz's opener for Liverpool at Tottenham

Pep Guardiola believes that officials have taken centre stage to such a degree that they are deserving of Oscars.

The Premier League is again embroiled in refereeing controversy after Luis Diaz's disallowed goal during Liverpool's defeat at Tottenham at the weekend.

The fallout from that error continues, with Manchester City's manager offering a withering assessment on the sport's escalating problems in the VAR era.

'They will have to find a system where the main roles are the players and the game itself,' Guardiola said.
