Tottenham Hotspur fans insist that Fernandinho should be banned from the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash later this week.
Spurs won the first leg 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Son Heung-Min scoring the only goal of the game.
Fernandinho was involved in a clash with striker Harry Kane before his injury, seemingly elbowing the England international in the back of the head.
Pep Guardiola, however, has now claimed that the Brazilian is a fitness doubt for the decisive encounter at the Etihad Stadium.
Speaking after the encounter with Crystal Palace in the Premier League, in which Fernandinho was left out, Guardiola was asked if his omission was due to an injury.
Per The Sun, he replied: “Yes. He finished badly against Tottenham. Today he is not fit. It’s short-term.”
And Spurs fans have reacted to the news on Twitter, insisting that there should be no doubt whatsoever over his involvement, as he should have been sent off anyway.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
Fernandinho should be more than a doubt – he should have been sent off for striking Kane last week and be banned for this week’s game otherwise what’s the point of VAR?

his elbow might be badly damaged after trying to cave in Kanes head with it.
