Sime Vrsaljko appeared to throw an object that hit City defender Aymeric Laporte. Kyle Walker had to be held back from chasing after the Croatian.
Pundits Joleon Lescott and Rio Ferdinand believe Savic’s issue with Grealish is born out of ‘jealousy’ and slammed the 31-year-old for being ‘selfish’. Lescott told BT Sport: “Savic had an issue with Jack in the first leg, you can see it’s a personal issue. There was something there.
“The rest of Atletico players are congratulating fans, whilst he’s in the tunnel. It’s a selfish act.”
Ferdinand continued: “It must’ve been the Gucci deal he got! He mustn’t be happy he got the Gucci deal! The hair length? I don’t know what’s wrong. Jealousy? Hundred million price tag? Either Jack [might have] said something we haven’t seen or he just doesn’t like the look of him. If I was Jack Grealish I’d be talking about being on the winning team.”
