When Stefan Savic looked like The Undertaker after red card vs Chelsea

Stefan Savic was at the centre of the chaos that unfolded during Atletico Madrid 0-0 Manchester City on Wednesday evening.

In the final few minutes of normal time, the Montengrian centre-back dragged an injured Phil Foden off the field of play after an unnecessary kick by Felipe on the Englishman.

City players were understandably furious with Savic and a melee between the two sides broke out at the Wanda Metropolitano.

During the skirmish, Savic headbutted Raheem Sterling for no reason and also pulled Jack Grealish by the hair after an X-rated outburst by the former Aston Villa playmaker.

Amazingly, the Atletico defender only received a yellow card, despite the fact VAR was in operation.

Savic continued his feud with Grealish in the tunnel after the full-time whistle had been blown, although it was Sime Vrsaljko who caused the most trouble as the two teams left the pitch.

Yeah, the second leg of Atletico and City’s Champions League quarter-final tie was pretty eventful – which is quite the understatement.

Savic’s antics against his former club were certainly not the first time he’s lost his cool against an English side on the European stage either.

Just last season, the 31-year-old was shown a straight red card against Chelsea for elbowing Antonio Rudiger.

Savic received a four-match ban for his thuggery in Atletico’s 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge, a result which saw the Spanish side eliminated from the 2020/21 Champions League.

But the the elbow on Rudiger itself is not what’s been doing the rounds on social media in the aftermath of City’s headline-making visit to the Wanda on Wednesday.

Instead, it’s the hilarious footage of Savic looking like The Undertaker as he walked off the pitch in west London, which you can check out below.

And it’s even better with the proper music…

It really was an exit befitting of the WWE legend and you wouldn’t have fancied getting in Savic’s way in that menacing mood.

The Atletico man is a magnificent defender, of that there’s no doubt, but sometimes he goes way too far with his fiery approach to the game.
