Fulham boss Mark Hughes has accused Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini of giving him a handshake that "lacked respect".
The controversy took place at the end of the 1-1 draw at Eastlands that all but ended Man City's chances of the Premiership title.
Hughes denied that he was being a bit precious and over sensitive and countered that Mancini's posture was also "lacking sincerity".
Sparkie continued "I was brought up to be smart at all times in public and that's why I always wear a freshly ironed shirt with the tie pulled right up to the neck. My suit jacket and trousers always match and my shoes are always shiny enough for me to see my reflection in them.
For me Roberto is always a bit scruffy. Wearing the club scarf knotted round his neck at every game might well endear him to the Man City fans, but to my mind it embodies everything that's wrong with the modern game.
Too many managers either wearing track suits or anoraks that aren't even long enough to cover the jacket underneath.
If we bosses don't set an example, how can we expect the players to behave themselves when they're out and about ?
Its the slippery slope.
The next thing you'll be telling me is its ok to chew gum in public and spit it out when the taste's gone.
Its the slippery slope, mark my words".
