UCL: ‘Disgraceful, I don’t want you in Premier League – Agbonlahor slams Simeone
Gabriel Agbonlahor, a former Aston Villa striker, has slammed Atletico Madrid following their Champions League quarter-final second leg brawl with Man City on Wednesday in Spain.
Simeone's behavior has been criticized by most football pundits across Europe, and Agbonlahor has stated that he never wants to see Simeone coach any Premier League club.
For much of the game, Simeone's team used aggression to try to disturb Pep Guardiola's side, depending on cynicism rather than quality for much of the game.
Felipe threw a punch at Manchester City's Phil Foden, and Stefan Savic tried to yank the England international off the field, accusing him of wasting time.
Savic also headbutted Raheem Sterling and tugged at the hair of City midfielder Jack Grealish.
The situation almost turned into physical fighting when the referee sent off Felipe for a second bookable offence, with manager Simeone getting infuriated.
The angry scenes continued after the full-time whistle, as Savic and Grealish clashed in the tunnel, while Sime Vrsaljko looked intent on fighting the entire City squad.
I don’t want Simeone in the #PL! He gave his players the license to kick players, "Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.
Savic is a bully! He picked on Foden and Grealish – he could have had 3 red cards! ”
“It was a disgrace!”
