Fans Spot Phil Foden's Hilarious Reaction To Diego Simeone's Touchline Antics

Phil Foden may have been targeted by Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night but at least the Manchester City star could see the funny side of the bruising encounter at the Wanda Metropolitano.

City ground out a goalless draw in Spain to progress to the last four of the Champions League with a 1-0 aggregate win over Atletico.

While the match may have lacked goals, it was packed full of drama, fouls and cards – with Foden seemingly at the centre of it all.


Early in the game, he was taken out in the air by a shocking challenge from Atletico defender Felipe, which left the England international with blood gushing out of his head. 

Foden required a bandage to treat the wound but was able to continue playing.

In the closing stages of the match, he was involved in another incident with Felipe, who appeared to kick out at the City player after a strong challenge.

A mass brawl then erupted after Stefan Savic attempted to pull Foden back to his feet, with Felipe eventually shown a red card after the dust had settled.

Throughout the match, Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone was his usually animated self on the touchline.

And fans have now spotted Foden’s hilarious reaction to an outburst from the fiery Argentine late in the match.

As Simeone wildly gesticulates towards the referee, Foden – complete with bandage – grins towards the City bench in disbelief.

It would end in smiles for the visitors, who held on for the draw to set up a semi-final clash with Atletico’s rivals Real Madrid.

But there could yet be more fallout from the game, with footage emerging of an altercation between Savic and Jack Grealish in the tunnel after full-time.
