​Brighton boss Potter hoping for 'cuddle' with Man City coach Guardiola

Brighton manager Graham Potter is hoping for a little "cuddle" with his opposite number at Manchester City, Pep Guardiola.

The duo were involved in a war of words during City's 3-2 defeat to Brighton at the Amex near the end of last season.

After one of Brighton's goals in that game, there was an altercation between both managers on the sidelines.

"It was the first goal. It was a poor reaction from me – an unintentional one, but still a poor one," Potter said, per the Manchester Evening News.

"Unfortunately I'm a human being that's not perfect. I'll shake his hand and hopefully, he'll give me a cuddle, but sometimes these things happen in life."
