Sagna: Referees Treat City Unfairly

share on:

Manchester City defender, Bacary Sagna has accused referees of treating his side unfairly, after they were denied a penalty in the 1-1 draw against Everton.

Sterling thought he was going to get a penalty when John Stones fell him in the box, only for the referee to wave play on.

With the match ending in a draw, Sagna has bemoaned that decision and the Aguero one in the 0-0 draw against Leicester.

“It’s not the first time. In the beginning we didn’t say anything but now – it was the case against Leicester with Agüero [as well],” he told reporters.

“The whole team are being unfairly treated. I don’t know why because it isn’t the first time it’s happened this season.

“Mistakes are natural – they [referees] are human beings – but at the end of the day we’re not getting the penalties – against Everton, Leicester and many other games.

“I don’t want to blame the referee because he’s the only official on the pitch. Maybe have someone behind the goal.

“What do we have to do to win a penalty if we get the touch in the box? When it’s against us it’s clearly a penalty and we’re punished straight away.

“If it happens in the middle of the pitch it’s not a problem; it’s clearly a foul. When in the box it’s a big difference when it shouldn’t be.”
