"[Guardiola] gets away with it doesn't he?" the Bluebirds manager told talkSPORT. "He had a go at us and he has a go at everybody when things aren't going well for him. That's the nature of the game, the big-timers get away with it from the FA.
"You can't tell me, at our ground, if I'd have done what he did and said what he did to the fourth official I'd have got reported. Unfortunately that's life isn't it, the big lads get away with things and at the lower end you don't."
Will Grigg scored the winner late on in the second half, before Guardiola and Latics manager Paul Cook clashed in the tunnel at the end of the game.
