Warnock: Man City big-timer Pep always gets away with it!

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock has had a pop at Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Warnock has claimed old rival Guardiola will escape an FA rap over Monday night's tunnel bust-up because he is a “big-timer".

Guardiola confronted match officials then clashed with Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook on the touchline after Fabian Delph was sent off just before half-time.

The pair continued their squabble down the tunnel, sparking a melee outside the changing rooms, but Warnock does not expect Pep to hear from the FA about his behaviour.

Warnock told talkSPORT: “He gets away with it doesn't he?

“He had a go at us and he has a go at everybody when things aren't going well for him.

“That's the nature of the game. The big-timers get away with it from the FA.

“It I had done what he did, or said what he said to the fourth official, I would have been reported.

“Unfortunately that's life isn't it. The big lads get away with things and in the lower end you don't."
