Man City star Sane blasted for going down ‘very, very easily’ to win penalty vs Boro

Date Posted,April 30, 2017

Steve Agnew blasted Leroy Sane after his tumble to win a penalty.

The Boro boss reckoned the City midfielder “went down too easily” when he clashed with Marten De Roon.

The penalty gave City a lifeline and the game ended in a draw, virtually condemning Boro to relegation.

Agnew, whose side put on their best show of the season, said: “Penalty? I didn’t think it was. The player went down very very easily.

“Was the referee (Kevin Friend) in the correct position to give it? The video I have seen looked like he didn’t have a clear view and if you give them you should have.

“Once it has been given I was pleased with the reaction to get a second goal.
