An injured Phil Foden was shoved off the pitch by ex-Manchester City defender Stefan Savic to spark a brawl as their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Atlético Madrid ended in chaos.
Manchester City and Atlético Madrid’s Champions League quarter-final second leg descends into chaos after former Citizen’s defender Stefan Savic sparked a mass brawl by dragging an injured Phil Foden off the pitch.
Foden had been cynically brought down by Felipe in the dying embers at the Wanda Metropolitano, with the score still 1-0 to City on aggregate after their first-leg win last week. With the England international rolling around in pain, Savic darted over and maltreated him to get him off the pitch.
His actions sparked a brawl involving players and coaching staff. German referee Daniel Siebert handed Savic a yellow card and gave fellow Atlético center-back Felipe his marching orders for a second booking.
The Brazilian had been lucky not to see yellow for a tackle on Foden early in the first half. Savic then clashed with Jack Grealish down the tunnel after full-time, having pulled his hair during the brawl.
