talkSPORT host Gabby Agbonlahor didn’t perceive the dearth of help for Manchester City from English soccer followers throughout their defeat in opposition to Real Madrid.
City had been dwelling and dry within the closing minute of their Champions League semi-final with a two-goal benefit that was then wiped away in astonishing circumstances.
Two targets in a minute for younger Brazilian Rodrygo flipped the sport on its head earlier than a Karim Benzema penalty in further time dumped City out of the competitors, leaving jaws dropped throughout the globe.
However some English soccer followers had been leaping up and down with delight at City’s demise, leaving former Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor bemused.
“So I went out to observe the sport final evening in a bar in London and sitting there with just a few of my pals watching it, supporting the English workforce in Manchester City.
“Each time Real Madrid scored, 99 per cent of the bar, there may have been about 1000 individuals within the bar, leaping up and celebrating for Real Madrid which baffles me.
“I spoke to a few them round me who mentioned to me ‘why are you not celebrating?’ and I mentioned ‘I’m supporting the English workforce’.
“There were a few Man United fans, Chelsea, other teams, but it really disappointed me, strange because you want to support the English teams and get an all English final, it was strange for me to see that.”
Liverpool will play each recreation attainable this season – however Mourinho has completed it earlier than
The Villa legend mentioned he’ll once more be supporting the British groups in tonight’s Europa League ties, and would even again his fiercest of midlands rivals.
“If there’s an English team left in the competition you want them to get through,” Agbonlahor defined.
“What are they going to say [on Thursday night]? They need Leipzig and Frankfurt to win?
“No I would like Rangers and West Ham to undergo. I’m not a Rangers fan, I’m not a West Ham fan, however I would like the British sides to undergo.
“I’m not sitting in a bar final evening pondering ‘come on Real Madrid’ the celebrations, actually, it was like I used to be in a bar in Madrid, baffled me.
“If Birmingham were in Europe I’d want them to do well, of course I would.”
Co-host Alan Brazil wasn’t satisfied with that assertion given video games between Villa and Birmingham are hotly contested.
“Do we believe him?” Brazil requested after a surprised pause, “Do we hell!”
