Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has given his own reaction to what occurred in the dying minutes of the game against Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Tottenham were able to beat Pep Guardiola’s side 1-0 in the first leg of the quarterfinal tie to take a good step towards progressing to the semifinals of the competition.
But the second leg started in the worst possible fashion for Spurs as Raheem Sterling opened the scoring with only four minutes on the clock.
The away side responded very well as a pair of fine strikes of Heung-min Son saw Tottenham regain the advantage before two more goals from City in the first half gave the hosts the momentum again.
After Sergio Aguero scored early in the second half, Spurs seemed to be heading out of the Champions League before Fernando Llorente bundled home a vital goal from a corner.
But that was not even the last piece of drama as Christian Eriksen lost the ball in a terrible area, resulting in a last gasp goal from Manchester City which would’ve won them the tie.
VAR later ruled out the goal but Neil Warnock has revealed he was bemused by Eriksen’s decision-making at that point.
“It’s going to stop that euphoria,” said Warnock, as quoted by This is Futbol
“I wasn’t euphoric. As a manager I just kept thinking ‘oh my God, what has Eriksen done? What has he done? How the hell is he going to go in the dressing room now?’.”
