The Frenchman has struggled to find a regular spot in Pep Guardiola’s first-team this season, but given the Sky Blues are playing tonight’s first-leg semi-final at home, and to a team from the Championship, you’d have thought the £32 million centre-back would cope OK, right?
Well, in the last few moments of the first period, his sloppy pass was intercepted, which led to Bristol being awarded a penalty kick for a foul on Bobby Reid, which was coolly dispatched by into the bottom corner by Reid himself.
There’s a second-leg at Ashton Gate, and the tie is far from over, but Man City fans seem to have seen enough of Mangala’s dodgy display already:
FUCK OFF MANGALA FUCK OFF, FUCK OFFFFGGGGGFF

Otamendy and Stones have done well this season but I still don't trust them. Kompany needs to fuck off and Mangala is Mangala

Get Mangala off. Not fit for City. Embarrassing

Mangala trying to defend

No need to blame stones, he was made to gamble because of a Mangala mistake.

I don't usually single out players but Mangala is a fucking liability.

Mangala needs sold. I don't even care if it's to a league 2 side for £3.

Mangala is the worst defender in our clubs history wallahi I’d rather Dunne came out of retirement this guy makes everyone so uneasy

Mangala is absolutely fucking rubbish. Sooner he goes the better.

Mangala is wank, Danilo is dodgy, Yaya is finished, what’s new?

Mangala and Stones proving that £78m+ can’t buy you happiness or a Conference level defence

He’s never really convinced at the top level since arriving at City in the summer of 2014 and surely Pep must be looking at upgrading him soon, eh?
What do you think?
