Chaos ended in the second leg of the quarter-final match between Atletico Madrid and Manchester City (0-0).
trigger? Night kick from Atletico defender Felipe against City star Phil Foden. The Atletico player is sent to the bathroom in yellow and red in injury time. The boil is boiling. As a result, players, substitutes and supervisors participate.
Among them is a colleague of Felipe Stefan Savic. Makes horrifying faces with a nod to Raheem Sterling. But it “just” gets away with yellow. Warning does not make him calm, on the contrary. A little later, Jack Grealish pulled his hair tight. The final stage is a wild one, as evidenced by the twelve minutes of injury time.
UEFA summons the police
Tinder is still there after the final whistle. On the way to the toilets, quarrels continued. According to Marca, Savic, Mario Hermoso and coach Andrea Berta clashed violently with Manchester City players to the point that the European Football Association is only one solution. She calls the police. According to the “Daily Mail”, four officials in protective clothing were deployed.
Sime Vrsaljko is also in the midst of turmoil in the catacombs. Several supervisors could barely hold him back as he prepares to attack Manchester City star Kyle Walker. As a result, Vrsaljko throws something in his direction, but crashes into Aymeric Laporte. According to Marca, he was said to have spat.
Scenes like this don’t belong in football. England legend Rio Ferdinand thinks so, too. “The disgusting behavior of the Atletico players, they should be ashamed of some behaviour,” he told BT Sports. It sounds similar to what Laporte, who was in the middle of the action, had said. “It’s always ugly when games like this end in melee,” he says at Movistar. ‘But it is superficial. In the end, there was such a buzz about a small thing.”
Giant vortex casts a shadow over a historical moment. Because Pep Guardiola has reached the semi-finals of the Champions League for the ninth time – more than any coach before him.
