Man City faces disciplinary action from association due to explosion of dissatisfaction with decision against Tottenham

England Football Association: Manchester City is unable to control inappropriate behavior by players

Erling Haalan protests

Manchester City (Man City), who violently protested the referee’s decision during a home game against Tottenham Hotspur in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), is in danger of disciplinary action.

According to Reuters and the Associated Press on the 5th (Korean time), the English Football Association (FA) said in a statement, “The players’ action of surrounding the referee in the match against Tottenham was a violation of FA regulation E20.1,” and “Man City Club is responsible for the inappropriate behavior of the players.” “I couldn’t control my actions,” he said.

E20.1 is a regulation that obliges clubs to ensure that players do not behave in an aggressive, violent, threatening, obscene, provocative or inappropriate manner.

Manchester City can appeal this charge until the 7th, local time.

The Manchester City players were dissatisfied with the decision and surrounded the referee just before the end of the 2023-2024 EPL round 14 home game against Tottenham on the 4th.

Erling Holland, who fell after being tackled by Emerson Royal during a counterattack opportunity in extra time in the second half, got up immediately, saw the referee’s advantage hand signal, and delivered an infiltration pass to Jack Grealish, who was running forward.

Just before Grealish, who broke down the defensive line, caught the ball and faced the goalkeeper in a one-on-one situation, the referee suddenly stopped the game and settled the situation with a free kick due to a belated foul.

The Manchester City players, who missed a golden scoring opportunity, ran straight to the referee and protested fiercely, and after the game, Holland uploaded a video of the scene on his social media service (SNS) along with the phrase ‘WTF‘, an English slang abbreviation for surprise or displeasure. A video was posted.

However, the FA decided not to take any special action regarding Holland’s online abusive language.

Manchester City, who were targeting Tottenham’s goal until the end of the game, ended up with a 3-3 draw. 토토사이트
