Video: Man City Fans Are Absolutely Furious as Otamendi Cleans Out Gabriel Jesus

Manchester City fans looked on in horror earlier today as two of their players collided during the Brazil v Argentina glamour friendly in Australia.

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:

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

What do you think of the incident?
