Akanji with derby frustration

“The first goal is a joke”

A questionable decision brings Manchester United back in the derby against ManCity. And paves the way for change. The scene causes trouble, even with Nati star Manuel Akanji.


This is not how Manuel Akanji imagined the outcome of the Manchester derby.

Manchester City has had everything under control in the city derby against United (1: 2) for a long time. Until the 78th minute runs and a questionable decision initiates the turnaround.

Marcus Rashford is sent off with a long pass, chases after the ball and only gives it to team-mate Bruno Fernandes at the last second. He says thank you and nets for a 1-1 equaliser. The goal counts, although Rashford started from a clear offside position and blocks the way for our Nati defender Manuel Akanji. VAR’s reasoning: He didn’t touch the ball, just covered it. This is assessed by the referee as passive offside.
