In today’s Sky Bet Championship match at The Valley, Charlton manager Bob Peeters and Wigan manager Uwe Rosler were involved in a touchline bust-up, as reported by The Daily Mail.
The match finished in a 2-1 victory to Charlton thanks to a 93rd minute goal by Franck Moussa which led to the start of the fracas. Charlton boss Peeters wildly celebrated the deflected winner in front of Rosler and this is what upset the Wigan manager.
Both men had to be separated by their backroom staff and the incident became the main talking point of the post-match press conference.
Peeters said in an interview: “‘We scored the second goal and I started running and celebrating. I didn’t know where to go. I need to keep my composure and go away because I know it is emotional in a game where you score in the 94th minute with a deflected shot.
“In that moment, I need to be smarter and just step away. I lost my composure a bit. I apologise before my players that I lost my composure. I need to be strong in every moment, but I’m not going to apologise to him because he said things to me. Never ever.”
When asked about his version of events, Wigan manager Rosler was quoted as saying: “My colleague was running 25-30 metres to celebrate right in front of our bench and I told him what I thought about this.”
He was later asked if he was still friends with the Charlton manager and in his response stated that they were both still colleagues, but not necessarily friends.
