Pep was angered by the Portuguese's actions against Barca's assistant coach following the ill-tempered Supercopa clash

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola was left frustrated by the behaviour of opposite number Jose Mourinho during his side's Supercopa victory over their biggest rivals at Camp Nou on Wednesday night.

The Catalan club secured their third consecutive Supercopa success thanks to a 3-2 win - and a 5-4 aggregate victory - after a feisty affair against Madrid.

A late red card to Marcelo, following a cynical foul on Barcelona's new signing Cesc Fabregas, resulted in a touchline brawl between the coaching staff of both clubs. During the ruckus Jose Mourinho appeared to poke Guardiola's assistant, Tito Vilanova, in the eye before blowing him a kiss from a distance.

On the altercation between the two men, Guardiola said: "The images speak for themselves. There are things that should not happen in football [and this is one]."

"This could end badly if unchecked. I can do something with my players, and make sure that they behave their best, but I do not give lessons to anyone
[else]."

Responding to Mourinho's claim that he did not know who he was 'poking', Guardiola commented: "He has to know who he is. I know who Karanka [Mourinho's assistant, Aitor] is. Tito is very important to our team."

In the game itself, a late Lionel Messi goal ensured that the Blaugrana defeated their old adversary for the first time in the competition's history to win a 10th Supercopa crown.
