Bolton boss Gary Megson has hit out at his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger for his refusal to shake Mark Hughes' hand after his side's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City at Eastlands on Wednesday evening.
The Frenchman headed straight down the tunnel after seeing his young side crash out of the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup, much to the bemusement of Hughes, who responded with a cheeky wave and a shake of the head.
Wenger is believed to have been left aggrieved after City chief Hughes stepped into his technical area during the first-half - made all the more petty when you consider Hughes was only trying to retrieve an out of play ball!
Hughes has accused Wenger of 'not know how to behave' and being 'ungracious' in defeat, and now Megson has waded into the row bu accusing the Gunners boss of setting a bad example to the fans wacthing around the world. "We're all trying for the same thing which is to win games for our respective football clubs," he said at his pre-match press conference. "I don't care who you are, you will try and get as many advantages as you possibly can.
"But in my view, you can do whatever you want, say whatever you like during the game but after the game, you should shake hands - even if you don't particularly mean it.
"You should shake hands because people are watching and will draw their own conclusions if you don't.
"I don't think that is particularly good on Arsene's part, and I think he has done it before."
Indeed he has Gary - ExtraFootie has blown the cobwebs off some old footage to prove that the 'The Professor' is a bit of a sore loser. Mind you the best always are - just ask Fergie!
The incident in question took place during the Gunners 1-0 defeat to West Ham back in November 2006 at Upton Park when Wenger was left furious with Hammers boss Alan Pardew for his Bruce Forsyth-style celebration after Marlon Harewood had netted the 89th-minute winner.
There was some pushing and a fair bit of shoving before a combination of fourth official and stewards separated the pair with Wenger refusing to shake Pardew's hand at the full-time whistle. Sound familiar?
