Video: Pep Guardiola hugs fourth official to celebrate Bayern Munich's goal

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola hugged the fourth official to celebrate Arjen Robben's opening goal for Bayern Munich against Schalke

Pep Guardiola was very happy when Bayern opened the scoring, as he hugged the 4th official

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola is an expressive man, we all know that. Those qualities of his were on display again last night during Bayern Munich’s 1-1 draw with Schalke.

After Arjen Robben opened the scoring in the 71st minute to give 10-man Bayern the lead, Guardiola went bonkers with happiness, as he celebrated the goal by pumping his fists, and then hugging the fourth official.

To his credit, the official showed great restraint to ensure that he remained neutral, and proceeded to quickly disentangle himself from the Spaniard’s hug, before getting back to his mark. 

This isn’t the first time that an animated Guardiola has been involved in an incident with the fourth official, as earlier this season, he was quite angry and vociferous in his complaints to a female fourth official, who remained unmoved and handled the situation very well.
