Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola could be in trouble after this incident
The 42-year-old took his frustration out on the female fourth official.

IT’S NOT OFTEN you see Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola let his emotions get the better of him. In fact, such is his team’s dominance in most games he rarely has a reason to get animated on the touchline.

Yet, as he watched his side fire blanks in their goalless draw with Borussia Monchengladbach at the weekend, he became increasingly frustrated with the opposition’s tactics.

Guardiola became engaged in a heated debate with fourth official Bibiana Steinhaus as the game entered injury-time before he put his hand on her waist and then grabbed her arm.

In the Bundesliga it is an offence to make physical contact with any official and the former Barcelona manager now faces the prospect of a touchline ban for his actions.
