The Mail reports: “Manchester City’s Jack Grealish was involved in a heated discussion with Pep Guardiola and Harry Maguire in the tunnel after Manchester United’s 2-1 derby win.”
“Grealish, who scored City’s only goal of the game, was very frustrated but not aggressive as he vented his anger in the tunnel, while the Citizens manager and the United captain also had a bit of a chat.”
Fjortoft said: “We know this derby has a big history. “After the 6-3 defeat, you have to understand that Manchester United will be very happy to turn this game around.”
like Pep Guardiola and Manuel Akanji, Fjortoft seemed to agree that Fernandes’ goal should not have stood.
