Manchester City fined £35,000 for player’s protest against penalty kick

Abuja, March 28, 2017 (TNE): Manchester City have been fined £35,000 by the English Football Association for their players’ behaviour during the 1-1 draw with Liverpool FC on March 19.

The club had admitted to a misconduct charge for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.

It followed an incident “in or around the 50th minute”, when referee Michael Oliver awarded Liverpool a penalty kick.

James Milner scored from the spot, with Sergio Aguero equalising in 69th minute.

Both Gael Clichy, who was penalised for a raised boot on Roberto Firmino, and David Silva were booked after Oliver pointed to the spot. (TNE)
