Callum McManaman scored a 96th minute equaliser for Sunderland on Saturday as they drew 3-3 with Middlesbrough at the Stadium of Light.
Initially, Sunderland boss Chris Coleman thought McManaman was running to him in celebration of what could be a vital point in their battle against relegation.
"I got blanked!" Coleman joked afterwards. McManaman, in fact, ran to celebrate in front of Tony Pulis, cupping his ear towards the Middlesbrough manager.
There is some history between the two: McManaman was Pulis's first signing when he took over as manager of West Brom in 2015.
Pulis told the Sunderland Echo after the game that he was not angered by McManaman's celebration. He also explained what he felt was the rationale behind the 26-year-old's actions.
No, not really. He was disappointed when he was at West Brom I never picked him. He went to Sheffield Wednesday and they didn't pick him and he is here and they don't pick him! I understand the boy is very frustrated. Let's talk about the game.
McManaman was booked for the celebration.
