Chaos as Stefan Savic pulls Jack Grealish’s hair and chases him down the tunnel with police forced to intervene
STEFAN SAVIC somehow avoided a red card despite charging at Phil Foden then PULLING Jack Grealish’s hair as his side crashed out of the Champions League in ugly fashion.
And Savic charged at unused sub Grealish in the tunnel after the full-time whistle as police rushed in to intervene.Stefan Savic pulled Jack Grealish’s hair in disgusting behaviour[/caption]
The Atletico Madrid defender inexplicably ran at Foden after he was booted to the ground by Felipe.
Felipe’s swipe at the City star earned him a second yellow as the clock struck 90 minutes.
The Brazilian escaped a yellow for clattering Foden early on but was cautioned for a foul on Kevin de Bruyne.
But after taking down Foden on the sideline, Felipe left Foden rolling on the edge of the pitch.
And Savic – who played 21 times for City between 2011 and 2012 – sparked utter chaos by trying to confront Foden.
The England ace was protected by his team-mate Oleksandr Zinchenko, who was warming up.
But Savic’s needless reaction caused a mass melee including players and coaches in the corner.
There was even a suggestion the Montenegro man landed a headbutt in the chaos while Felipe furiously berated the ref following his sending off.
However, despite the aid of VAR, Savic somehow escaped with just a yellow card.
