Football Association to keep watchful eye on Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini.
Mancini has frequently been caught on television waving his hands around trying to indicate that opposition players should be sent off.
The most recent examples of this was during the Liverpool game where he wanted England international Glen Johnson sent off for a tackle on Adam Johnson and then he did the action again following a handball by Maynor Figueroa in their match against Wigan this week.
Players are now punished for such actions on the pitch as it clearly contravenes the Respect agenda, however Mancini has so far avoided disciplinary action.
The Telegraph believe that Football Association however will take action if he continues to pressure referees.
But what has this got to do with Wolves? Well nothing directly, we have already played them twice back in October and are not set to play the league leaders again until April.
But Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy has been asked about it anyway, with the press knowing full well that he wouldn't hold back on any punches and that's exactly what they got.
"None of us should do it - it is something I don`t like, There is a cultural difference but Roberto is in this country now. We have to give people a bit of credence for different culture and different places. But when they come here they have to understand that, just as when I go anywhere else, I have to understand their culture.' McCarthy told The Telegraph.
He continued: "I was asked the other day, should we be teaching players coming into this country to behave? I said: 'No, I know how to behave and I`ve been all over the world in my capacity as Irish manager and not upset anyone`."
"It is a little blip on a really good career for him because he handles himself with such good dignity and grace, I`m sure if it is pointed out, Roberto won`t do it again.
"I had it with QPR a while back and took real offence to it. Bruno Oliveira did it and I think I said I would break his fingers. Paulo Sousa was in charge and he was really apologetic and he explained that is their culture. But I said: 'You are in our league and our culture. Don`t do it and we will get on.`"
