Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has apologized for his foul-mouthed comment to Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini that was made in a heated match between both clubs earlier on Sunday.
Pardew called Pellegrini a f***ing old c***, which was caught on live TV.
“I hear my comments were picked up and I apologize for them 100%. In the heat of the moment we had words as we managers always have.
“I have apologized to him. And fortunately he’s accepted.”
Meanwhile, Pardew shined more light on how the match officials incorrectly disallowed Cheick Tiote’s goal against Manchester City:
“When I spoke to the referee he actually thought it had got deflected, which it hadn’t – it was a clean strike. It’s hard, it all happened so quickly, but a call like that is going to affect the game. It was all getting a little bit heated. It affected the players.”
