Kyle Walker was angry about the way the Arsenal coach acted after Manchester City lost, which led to the fight.
Kyle Walker yelled at Nicolas Jover, a former coworker, near the exit after Manchester City lost because of how the Arsenal coach acted when they met last season.
When the Blues got off the field after Arsenal’s 1-0 win, they saw Jover waiting for them, and City defender Walker was one of the first people who looked upset. Erling Haaland was one of the players seen standing behind Walker before the England player was led down the tunnel. The event was a heated outburst at the end of a calm game on the field. It was talked about for a long time on the broadcasts after the game, and Pep Guardiola admitted in his press conference that he knew what had happened but would not share it.
It is thought that there were no issues with Jover while he worked at the club or with his choice to follow Mikel Arteta to North London. However, City players were upset when Jover refused to shake their hands after their two league wins over Arsenal last season.
Some of them thought it was hypocritical that the coach was waiting for them on Sunday after Arsenal ended their losing streak. As captain, Walker felt the need to call him out on it. The FA will not do anything about what happened.
Arsenal’s win put them ahead of City in the table after eight games. They are now tied with Tottenham at the top of the table, two points behind the champions. Guardiola’s team has lost back-to-back league games for the first time in five years. They will play Brighton at home after the international break and try to get back to winning ways.
