Plum FA Cup draw for Rotherham United as they head to Manchester City
Paul Warne-iola

PAUL Warne will face the boss who inspired a chant about him after Rotherham United were drawn away to Premier League champions Manchester City in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Millers head to the Etihad Stadium on the weekend of January 5 to take on the team that ran away with the league last season.

City are managed by Pep Guardiola and Rotherham fans sing a song about 'Warne-iola' in tribute to their own manager who led them to promotion to the Championship last term.

The two bosses have striking physical similarities with their beards and shaved heads and met each other for the first time at an awards ceremony in Manchester last month.
