Pep Guardiola could be facing a ban after this touchline meltdown at the weekend

We've rarely seen the Bayern Munich manager lose it like this during a match...

We imagine that Pep Guardiola treats most draws like defeats due to the high standards of excellence that he has set with his teams.

Bayern Munich have made a solid start to the defence of their Bundesliga crown having taken 21 points from a possible 27 but their manager still cut a frustrated figure at the weekend.

The Bavarians laboured to a goalless draw with Borussia Monchengladbach despite having 72% possession.

The Spanish coach was getting increasingly frustrated on the sideline and began to take his frustrations out on the female fourth official Bibiana Steinhaus.

In injury-time, Monchengladbach's Granit Xhaka dropped to the floor and required medical help which Guardiola took as a sign of time wasting.

Take a look at the Bayern boss as he engages in a heated debate with fourth official Steinhaus, who is a qualified policewoman , and his reaction to the news that there wouldn’t be any more time added on.

Guardiola now faces a potential ban for inappropriate conduct.
