Wolves boss Mick McCarthy admits he almost dropped himself in it when squaring up to Manchester City star Yaya Toure.
McCarthy doesnâ€™t suffer fools lightly, nor will he back down when he feels he should fight his corner.
Asked to name the most Âinfluential Premier League player this season, McCarthy said: â€œAt the moment Iâ€™d say Yaya Toure â€“ because I love his name!
â€œWe did have a bit of spat on the sideline last season but we had a love-in after the game and weâ€™re friends now. But I realised when he walked off heâ€™s about three inches bigger than me. It would have been a good scrap though!
â€œThe Premier League is without doubt the best in the world but itâ€™s remorseless, relentless and so unforgiving. If you make a mistake you get punished."
