Pep Guardiola was spotted having a hilarious exchange with a Manchester City fan during their Premier League clash against Newcastle United.
On Saturday night at the Etihad Stadium, champions City were looking to make it two wins out of two against Eddie Howe’s Magpies, who were 5-1 winners last week against Aston Villa.
After what was a cagey start to the match, City found the go-ahead goal thanks to a brilliant Julian Alvarez strike in the 31st minute.
During the second half, Newcastle started to get themselves into the game which left City fans slightly worried.
City boss Guardiola was then spotted having an altercation with a fan, in which he appeared to ask the fan to take his place on the bench.
Have a look at the footage below.
