Playing at centre-back for Argentina was the uncompromising Nicolas Otamendi, who, as you may well know, doesn’t take many prisoners when he goes into a full-blooded tackle.
Unfortunately for Citizens, the man on the end of today’s particular tackle was his club mate Gabriel Jesus – who has only just recovered from a broken foot.
It seems that as he went up for a header, Otamendi thought he’d try and give Jesus a broken nose to go along with his foot:
That was in the final moments of the match, and it looks as though the stretcher was just for precautionary measures, but that hasn’t stopped some supporters from giving Otamendi absolute dog’s abuse:

The first day back at pre-season training should be interesting.
