Pep Guardiola loses cool with Wigan manager as Man City exit FA Cup (VIDEO)

Pep Guardiola loses cool with opposition manager as Man City exit FA Cup (VIDEO)

Pep Guardiola was involved in a furious row with Wigan boss Paul Cook as Manchester City's quadruple bid was sensationally derailed by their FA Cup bogey team.

Will Grigg scored a stunning late breakaway goal as Wigan repeated their shock 2013 final victory over City in a fiery fifth-round tie at the DW Stadium, winning 1-0.

The main talking point came on the stroke of half-time as City's Fabian Delph was controversially sent off and an irate Guardiola became embroiled in a touchline argument with Cook.

The pair continued their row in the tunnel as the teams left the field at half-time and they had to be separated by colleagues.

After all Guardiola's recent complaints about bad tackles on his players, Delph was dismissed for sliding in on Max Power.

Yet, despite their numerical disadvantage, City only had themselves to blame for spurning a host of chances against the League One side.

Grigg made them pay in the 79th minute as Latics secured another famous victory over City following their 2013 success and another in the quarter-finals the following year.

Against the odds, it is now they who go forward to a last-eight tie with Southampton and not the runaway Premier League leaders.

Sergio Aguero may also be facing disciplinary action after he was seen in an altercation with a fan after the game.
