Footage Emerges Of All Hell Breaking Loose In The Tunnel After Atletico Madrid Vs Manchester City

Footage has emerged of all hell breaking loose in the Atletico Madrid tunnel after their Champions League quarter final knockout defeat to Manchester City.

City progressed to the semi-finals courtesy of a 1-0 aggregate lead achieved in the first fixture, digging in deep in the second leg to claim a hard-fought 0-0 draw.

But tensions boiled over hugely at the end, with Atleti defender Felipe being shown a second yellow card for leaving one on Phil Foden, who he had bloodied and brutalised in the first half with a nasty challenge that somehow didn’t result in a caution.

It was then Stefan Savic’s turn to lose his head, trying to drag Foden to his feet, appearing to attempt a headbutt on Raheem Sterling and pulling the hair of Jack Grealish.

And tempers continued to flare as things spilled into the tunnel. In footage taken from UEFA’s feed, an angry Savic can be seen still trying to get at Grealish.

In addition, full-back Šime Vrsaljko threw an object in the direction of City players and staff and appeared to even spit at them in unsavoury scenes.

On the opposite side, the injured Kyle Walker had to be restrained by teammate Ederson.

Eight police officers made their way to the top of the tunnel to diffuse the utter pandemonium that had been created.
