Toure Suggests Manchester Derby Without Ref After FA Cup Defeat

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has said he would rather play against Manchester United on Thursday “without a referee” after City had a goal wrongly disallowed in their 2-1 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Per BBC Sport, he said: “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. Maybe on Thursday we are going to have a better referee or maybe play without a referee—I’d prefer that.”


Sergio Aguero’s goal was chalked off after Leroy Sane’s cross was incorrectly adjudged to have exited play.


The goal would have potentially given City a 2-0 lead when Aguero struck again after the break, which likely would have put them beyond Arsenal, who eventually won 2-1 in extra time.


Match of the Day host Gary Lineker believed it was a clear error from Craig Pawson and the other match officials:


Returning to the Manchester derby, Toure added: “It is a very big game, an important game. We have to do that job and we will see what can happen. We hope we are going to have a good referee.”
