Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini insists his players will never surround referees in an attempt to influence decisions.
The issue of player behaviour towards officials has been highlighted this week after Chelsea were widely criticised for their actions during the Champions League game against Paris St Germain on Wednesday.
One incident saw nine Chelsea players surround Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers after a challenge by Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Oscar that resulted in the PSG striker's dismissal.
Pellegrini said: "You will never see a player of City surround the referee. I don't think that's the way this team is prepared to win.
"Maybe you can discuss with the referee about a decision, but just (for) one moment in the game."
