Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola may face a ban after losing his temper with a female fourth official during the German giants' goalless draw at Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Guardiola's side remains at the top of the Bundesliga, securing 72% possession in the game, but the Spanish manager looked frustrated as the team failed to score a goal, despite Munich maintaining the four-point gap between themselves and second-placed Mönchengladbach.
The Spaniard looked especially riled by Mönchengladbach's supposed time wasting time and took his frustrations out on fourth official Bibiana Steinhaus.
The former Barcelona coach frustratedly exchanged words with Steinhaus and made her shake his hand before he yanked his away and tapped her vigourously on the arm.
When asked about the incident later, Guardiola justified his decision claiming the rivals were constantly wasting time: "I wanted more time, but she said 'no, we are not doing that'."'
Even though the referee decide against sending off Guardiola during the game, the Catalan manager may be punished retroactively by the DFB football court as it is an offence to make physical contact with any official.
Meanwhile, many football pundits and supporters around the world have expressed their disappointing with Guardiola attitude through social media, urging the Bundesliga to ban him.
