Fans Have Spotted Scott Carson's Involvement In Tunnel Bust-Up Footage, He Wasn't Messing Around

All hell broke loose at the Wanda Metropolitano following Manchester City's aggregate win against Atletico Madrid – and heated tunnel footage featuring technical staff, substitutes and those who featured in the semi-final clash has emerged.

Pep Guardiola's side progressed to the next stage of the Champions League thanks to a resolute performance at the back, but it was some unsavoury scenes in the final 10 minutes – and in the tunnel – that grabbed the headlines on a dramatic Wednesday night in Madrid.

With tempers clearly still high, the tunnel footage begins with Jack Grealish and Stefan Savic having a word. Atletico full-back Sime Vrsaljko then appears to throw an object in the direction of City players, before Kyle Walker had to be restrained by teammate Ederson.

But what many fans failed to spot was the role of Manchester City's third-choice goalkeeper Scott Carson. In what appears to be an interaction with Atletico defender Vrsaljko, the Cumbrian appears to nod in the direction of the dressing room before making his point clear.

A number of police officers eventually intervened as the football world discussed what we had just seen at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Rio Ferdinand says the behaviour of Atletico player was "distasteful" in his post-match comments. "They should be embarrassed with some of the antics they have gone on," he added.

"You have to say, talking about football, well done to Atletico Madrid as they made Manchester City play in a way we haven't seen for a long time, took them out of their rhythm and their stride.

"But some of the stuff towards the end was not what you want to see on a football pitch."

Ferdinand continued: "From what we've seen, it is handbags in the tunnel with Atletico and City.

"It is best it ended like that but it is pantomime. You've got Savic acting the fool. The thing that riled me, he kicks his calf, this is what Atletico do, if it was the reverse, they'd be doing exactly the same thing.

"Great for City not to react to the antics. In the tunnel, it goes off, you feel nobody can see. But here it is just handbags. City showed grit and determination and got the job done.

"The experienced players are more mature now, they can control emotions, you saw the reaction was collective but nobody overstepped the mark."

Thoughts on the scenes at full-time?
