Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has apologised to Stoke counterpart Tony Pulis for not shaking his hand last week.

Mancini did not offer his hand to Pulis after being angered by events during his side's frustrating Barclays Premier League draw at the Britannia Stadium. The Italian also refused to speak to media after his side were held 1-1, a result which later allowed rivals Manchester United to move three points clear at the top of the table.

City were annoyed by a number of incidents, including a clash between Dean Whitehead and City midfielder David Silva which left the Spaniard needing treatment for a head wound. Mancini said: "I spoke with Tony Pulis. When I turned he had gone to the dressing room but I spoke with him by telephone. There is no problem, I said sorry."
