Man City Fined £120,000 Over Chaotic Scenes In Draw Against Tottenham

Manchester City have been fined £120,000 ($152,000) after their players surrounded referee Simon Hooper in the closing moments of their 3-3 draw with Tottenham earlier this month.

Hooper made the contentious call to bring play back after he initially played advantage following Emerson Royal’s mistimed challenge on Erling Haaland. Haaland was able to get back to his feet and produce a through ball which sent Jack Grealish away, but Hooper blew his whistle to end a promising attack.

It sparked an animated reaction from City’s players, with top-scorer Haaland in particular incensed.

Haaland expressed his frustration again at full-time and later made clear his bemusement with a post on social media site X, formerly known as Twitter.

The Football Association has now fined City £120,000 after they admitted their players behaved in an improper way.
