Newcastle boss Pardew apologises for abusing Pellegrini

Monday 13 January 2014

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has apologised for losing his temper with referee Mike Jones and taking it out on Manuel Pellegrini after his side were denied an equalising goal against Manchester City, ESPN has reported.

Cheick Tiote shot past Joe Hart in the first-half of what proved to be a 2-0 win for City but Jones disallowed the goal after consulting one of his assistants and ruling that a Newcastle player was in an offside position and interfering with play, preventing Joe Hart from making the save.


Pardew reacted furiously, confronting Jones as the official left the pitch at half-time and appearing to verbally abuse his City counterpart Pellegrini. “I apologise for that,” Pardew said post-match.


“But he had words with me first and it was just normal for managers that go unseen most of the time,” he added. “We're fine, I shook his hand at the end and I'll see him before I go.”


Pardew rejected the suggestion that Yoann Gouffran was standing in an offside position, and revealed he hadn’t had a straight answer from Jones. He said: “I don't think he was clear in his answers about Hart being impaired - I couldn't work that out.


“I don't understand it. Even if Man City's back four is on the edge of the box and we've got four offside, it's such a clean hit, it's going in the top corner.


“He's got that wrong and unfortunately that was a massive call. In these type of games that has got to go your way. It was probably easier for him to give the goal and I can't understand why he hasn't.”


The defeat leaves Newcastle in eighth place and is their fourth loss in a row. Pardew’s side have been beaten in their last three Premier League games - losing to City, West Brom and Arsenal - and were knocked out of the FA Cup by Cardiff.
