Guardiola skips MLS handshake

Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola and his assistants denied a handshake from MLS All-Stars coach, Caleb Porter.

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola said he didn't shake the hand of MLS All-Star squad manager Caleb Porter after his side's 2-1 loss in Portland because he didn't see his counterpart.

Guardiola became incensed with referees and the MLS All-Stars' bench during the second half, seemingly due to rough play by the U.S. league's substitutes who came on at halftime. But the Bayern boss was dismissive of the situation in his postgame interviews, even though he seemed to wag a finger at Porter at full-time.

"I didn't see him," Guardiola said after the match. "We tried to respect the rules of the game. I appreciate the effort of my players."

- McIntyre: Pep, Donovan stand out among stars

MLS All-Stars Osvaldo Alonso and Will Johnson both received yellow cards in the second half for hard tackles that clearly upset the Bayern Munich players and their coach on the bench. Bayern's assistant coaches also refused to shake Porter's hand while walking away from him after the match.

Bastian Schweinsteiger suffered a knock to his ankle on Johnson's tackle and immediately left the game.

Schweinsteiger and many of the other Bayern players who starred at the World Cup for Germany were making their first appearance of the preseason, with some flying 12 hours simply to play 15 minutes, out of "respect" for the All-Star Game, Guardiola said. But the Spanish manager did not comment at length.

"It's not my job to be concerned with their tackles," he said. "That is another person's job."

After leaving the field, Guardiola was in a better mood, with U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati reporting the coaches resolved their differences while out of the spotlight.

The incident was a blemish on an otherwise engaging match that saw the German champions take an early 1-0 lead via a goal from Robert Lewandowski. But second-half substitutes Bradley Wright-Phillips and Landon Donovan put the MLS All-Stars, respectively scoring the hosts' equaliser and winner.

Landon Donovan scored the MLS All-Stars' game winner and walked away with the game's MVP honors as well.

"Some of the stuff at the end is unfortunate it gets blown out of proportion like that," Donovan told ESPN FC TV. "But the guys are playing hard and they are proud of this league and they want to win the game."

For his part, Porter, who manages the hometown Portland Timbers, said the way the game ended wouldn't take anything away from how proud he was of the team and the result.

"That was such a small part of tonight," Porter said. "There's really no reason for me to talk about it. Coaches get heated. Like I said, there was so much good to talk about that there's no reason to make that a story."

At the end of his news conference, Guardiola joked that he wanted a rematch next year. 

"I expect they're going to invite us next year to try to make the revenge [match], and I'm going to prepare a little bit better," he said. "We will be sure what was going on. We will do it. I hope our invitation is coming."
