Mancini & Moyes face probe after row

Highlight Story

Man City manager Roberto Mancini and Everton boss David Moyes look set to face an FA investigation after they were dismissed during the visitors' 2-0 win.

In the last minute, Mancini stormed into Moyes' touchline area to try and wrestle the ball from his grasp after the Everton chief had caught it. Referee Peter Walton sent the pair from the field as their dispute escalated, although Mancini did appear to be the aggressor.

“Next time I will just let the ball run," said Moyes. “I caught it because I was making a substitution and it actually would have helped him.

“I was very surprised that I got sent off, if I had kicked the ball down the touchline, I could have understood it. But I actually speeded it up and I wasn’t the one throughout the game waving cards."
