Pep Guardiola, Manchester City's manager, acknowledged the impressive performance by Wolverhampton Wanderers in their 2-1 victory over his team, which brought an end to City's perfect start to the season after six consecutive wins. Guardiola praised Wolves for their display and congratulated them on earning the three points.

He specifically highlighted the influence of winger Pedro Neto, whose driving run played a crucial role in the opening goal. Guardiola commended Wolves for their play and acknowledged that his team struggled to maintain their attacking fluidity during the match, especially in the transitions where Neto and Wolves were more effective.

Guardiola also addressed the South Korean forward Hwang Hee-chan, who scored the winning goal for Wolves in the second half. Hwang had been involved in some contentious challenges during the match but was only shown a yellow card. Guardiola refrained from giving an opinion on the referee's decisions, emphasizing that the result was not determined by the referee's actions.

He noted that Manchester City's success in the Premier League has never been solely dependent on referees, citing their previous titles. Guardiola stressed that their loss against Wolves was due to their own performance rather than refereeing decisions.

Guardiola also recognized the solid defensive work by Wolves, particularly in containing Premier League's leading scorer, Erling Haaland, who had limited opportunities to create scoring chances.

In summary, Guardiola credited Wolves for their well-deserved victory, admitted his team's shortcomings in attack and transitions, and emphasized the need for self-improvement rather than placing blame on referees.
