Fan Video Reveals Haaland-Lo Celso Clash Post Man City vs. Tottenham
One spectator’s camera lens caught the pivotal moment that triggered a heated altercation between Erling Haaland and Giovani Lo Celso during Sunday’s match.
After Tottenham secured a late equalizer in a 3-3 draw against Manchester City at the Etihad, Haaland, visibly incensed, directed his fury towards referee Simon Hooper for not allowing a significant chance for Jack Grealish due to a missed advantage call.
Expressing his vehement discontent to the officials, Haaland stormed off the field in protest, yet his agitation didn’t cease there. As he made his way towards the tunnel, footage from the stands captured an encounter between the Norwegian striker and Tottenham’s Lo Celso. In the midst of the exchange, Lo Celso’s words seemed to halt Haaland momentarily, leading to a tense moment before teammates and club staff intervened, diffusing the situation.
The incident continued to reverberate on social media as Haaland, upon reaching the Manchester City changing room, shared a video highlighting Hooper’s controversial late call, expressing his frustration with a succinct “WTF” in the caption. Additionally, his father, Alfie, condemned the decision with a comment expressing his disappointment.
In contrast, Manchester City’s manager, Pep Guardiola, maintained composure during the post-match interview. Guardiola refrained from extensive commentary on the late drama, expressing dissatisfaction with the referee’s decision to blow the whistle after initially signaling to play on. The Spaniard conveyed regret over such actions, lamenting the unpredictable nature of football, where deserving outcomes are not always realized.”Fan Video Reveals Haaland-Lo Celso Clash Post Man City vs. Tottenham“
