Pep Guardiola absolutely lost the fucking plot at half-time of tonight's FA Cup fifth round tie between Wigan Athletic and Manchester City, following the sending off of Fabian Delph at the close of the first half.
The Manchester City boss reacted in a manner similar to a bloke who, while eight pints deep, has his ninth knocked down the front of his new shirt.
Delph was given his marching orders for a challenge on Wigan's Max Power, with a lot of controversy stemming from the referee initially pulling out a yellow card before changing his mind and brandishing a red, instead.

Needless to say, Guardiola went absolutely fucking spare, having to be separated from Latics manager Paul Cook at half-time as he ranted at anyone who would listen and, presumably, cost himself a full-time can of Skol with Cook. Wounded.

Hasn't Guardiola campaigned all season for refs to protect players, emphasising he means all players not just his?- Jonathan Overend (@jsoverend) February 19, 2018
At the time of writing, City's one man disadvantage hasn't seemed to make much of a difference, with the scoreline remaining 0-0, although the negative reactions towards Guardiola's actions have continued to pile up on social media.
Should the City manager receive punishment from the FA for his actions?
