Wigan boss Roberto Martinez and Manchester United's Wayne Rooney have criticised Roberto Mancini for waving an imaginary card at referee Martin Atkinson during his side's 1-0 win at Wigan.
Mancini was up in arms that Maynor Figueroa, having completely misjudged the bounce of Nigel de Jong's long punt forward, only got a yellow card for handling the ball to prevent Sergio Aguero running through on goal from the halfway line.
Watching on TV, Rooney was quick to make a sarcastic comment. "Was Manchini (sic) asking for red card????" he wrote on Twitter. Martinez said: "He has misjudged the bounce but he is not even in his own half. I don't think it is a red card. I've been here long enough to understand that trying to influence the referee is not accepted in the British game."
