Man City fans spot Scott Carson’s role in Atletico Madrid downfall as veteran Champions League goalkeeper’s record puts Arsenal and Tottenham to shame


Scott Carson reminded everyone that he was playing for Manchester City on Wednesday night with a subtle role in the Atletico Madrid brawl.

City’s Champions League quarter-final triumph descended into chaos as a mass brawl between the players spilled into the tunnel after full time.

Stefan Savic was the villain of the piece, dragging Phil Foden off the field, headbutting Raheem Sterling, then chasing Jack Grealish to the locker room after pulling his hair.

But Carson, the former Derby man, has become an unsung hero.

Police were on the scene as an animated Sime Vrsaljko acted as if he wanted to take on the entire town squad – despite very little stopping him from doing so.

However, the Atletico full-back wasn’t deceiving Carson. The veteran keeper doesn’t have time for purses at dawn.

After making two appearances for City during his time at the club, it turns out that Carson is also acting as a bouncer for his teammates.

Fans on social media spotted a moment in tunnel footage when the 36-year-old, an unused substitute on the night, appeared to offer Vrsaljko, motioning for him to take the dispute ‘outside’, so say.

And Carson will undoubtedly have the last laugh after finding himself in yet another Champions League semi-final side.

That’s three for his career: one more than Arsenal and Tottenham.
