We Will Prefer To Play Manchester Derby Without Referees – Yaya Toure Says


Manchester City’s Yaya Toure, was left fuming by the officiating during their 2-1 loss to Arsenal, in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday at Wembley.

Toure is angry that referee Craig Pawson, ruled out what looked like a legitimate goal for City in the first half, after deeming that Leroy Sane’s cross drifted out of play.

“I think the referees have to stop this. I am very disappointed. It is not the first time – there have been a couple of times. “If we have to talk about referees, people are going to say we complain – but when we see the highlights, it is very disappointing.

“Maybe on Thursday [for the Manchester derby at the Etihad] we are going to have a better referee or maybe play without a referee – I’d prefer that,” Toure said.

City host rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday.
