Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has apologised to Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini for his actions during their encounter yesterday afternoon.
After seeing his side have a goal wrongly disallowed, Pardew couldn’t hide his emotions and was caught on camera shouting abuse at his opposite number, Pellegrini.
Cheick Tiote volleyed home to make it 1-1 at St James Park, but after a lot of discussion with his linesman, the match official ruled the goal out after claiming that Yoan Gouffran was putting off Joe Hart in an offside position.
After finding out that the goal was ruled out, Pardew was yelling at the fourth official and then continued his abuse and aimed it at Pellegrini calling him a f*****g old c**t.
When questioned about the incident after the game, The Magpies boss apologised for his actions.
“It was a heat of the moment thing,” said Newcastle manager Pardew.
“We just had words that we always have as managers, to a degree. I have apologised and he has accepted that.”
