Southampton manager Ronald Koeman angered by Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough following Capital One Cup exit

After seeing his side lose 1-0 against Sheffield United in the Capital One Cup quarter-final, Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has accused the United boss of a lack of respect, reports BBC Sport.

Koeman was unhappy with the way Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough and his staff celebrated their winning goal, and had words with the Blades boss following the incident. The Sheffield staff were also argumentative towards the match officials, which the Saints manager took a disliking too.

United’s first-team coach Chris Morgan was sent to the stands after a heated exchange, and the two managers failed to shake hands following the final whistle.

“I shake hands with people who have respect for me and have respect for the fourth official. The behaviour of Sheffield United’s bench, I never saw that (before),” said Koeman.
