The Guardian's Jamie Jackson was at the centre of a remarkable exchange with Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola after Tuesday's 1-1 draw against Manchester United - which even made the front page of Germany's Bild online version. Here is what happened in the post-match press conference in the reporter's own words.

The moment when it seemed something might be needling Pep Guardiola more than he wished to admit came around halfway through the press conference. Given that Bayern had been firm favourites for the Champions League quarter-final I asked if he was disappointed at all by his team following their performance in the opening leg at Old Trafford.

"No, no. Absolutely not," he answered, which reads as a regulation reply. Yet his manner and tone suggested the opposite, along with the curtness of the response.

Later, Guardiola said of the approach of David Moyes's team: "It's not easy when you want to control the game and nine players in the box, eight, nine players there. So it's not easy. But we controlled the game."

From this, the following exchange between Guardiola and myself occurred.

Me: "Do you think Manchester United were a little bit negative then by their tactics of crowding their defence?"
PG: "Nein [no], nein, nein."
Me: "That's what it sounds like a little bit ... Do you think it's a little bit negative, they're at home, they're the 20-times champions of England?"
PG: [in a low growl]: "I didn't say that."
Me: "No, I'm asking you your opinion.
PG: "I didn't say that. I didn't."
Me: "OK."
PG: "I didn't say that. He's [Moyes] my colleague. I respect my colleague and colleague can play like - look at me when I talk to you."
At this point, I seem to have looked away from Guardiola, which angered him.
Me: [surprised] "Are you talking to me?"
PG: "Yeah, look at me when I talk to you."
Me: "Yeah, OK, I am looking at you."
PG: "Yeah!"
Me: [keen to establish courtesy is a two-way street]: "Are you looking at me?"
PG: "Yeah."
Me: [laughing] "It's like Taxi Driver this."
PG: "No, but I'm talking to you, you don't look at me, so I am trying explain."
Me: "Calm down, calm down."
PG: "I am trying to explain. I'm trying to explain."
At which point the press briefing moved on.
