Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola watched on furiously as his side lost 1-0 to Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie at the Vicente Calderon on Wednesday night.
The former Barcelona coach would have been angry with the lackadaisical effort from defenders after they let Saul Niguez dance his way through them en route to a stunner of a goal, but he probably blames the grass at the stadium as well.
The manager was seen testing the grass before the match, even beckoning one of his staff members to come out to measure the length. He didn't seem at all pleased with the discovery.
Guardiola spends his pre match measuring the length of the grass. Arsene spends his trying to do his coat up

@allas4 are other teams obliged to adhere to Guardiola's favoured grass length?

If Bayern score goals in the second leg, perhaps Pep's anger will be justified.
