Manchester City experienced a shocking defeat against Wigan Athletic on Monday night.

The 1-0 loss was packed with a few controversial incidents, but one of the circumstances which enticed attention included Pep Guardiola, who was seen losing control at the half-time of the FA Cup fifth round clash.

As the match edged close to the half-time whistle, Fabian Delph was shown a red card, which occurred to have triggered the prolific gaffer. The wild exhibition of the Mancunian boss has undoubtedly ignited supporters to jam Twitter with numerous negative reactions.

Referee Anthony Taylor looked like he was going to book Delph for a challenge on Max Power, as he had his yellow card in his hand, but exposed the red instead.

The fuming Spanish tactician expressed his disapproval with Latics manager Paul Cook on the touchline wildly, which saw him being separated from the home side’s boss.

However, television cameras inside the tunnel have exposed the incident that proceeded even down the tunnel.

The two gaffers were seen yelling at each other before the Spaniard was pulled away from his counterpart, who then marched towards his team’s dressing room.

Delph will receive a three-match ban for his reckless slide on Power, consequently missing Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Arsenal as well as Premier League clashes against the Gunners and reigning champions Chelsea.
