Yaya Toure will prefer to play Manchester derby without referees

Manchester City’s midfielder, Yaya Toure, was left furious by the officiating during their 2-1 loss to Arsenal, in the FA Cup semi-final.

The Ivoria midfielder is angry that referee Craig Pawson, ruled out what looked like a legitimate goal for City in the first half, after deeming that Leroy Sane’s cross drifted out of play. He said.

“I think the referees have to stop this. I am very disappointed. It is not the first time – there have been a couple of times.

“If we have to talk about referees, people are going to say we complain – but when we see the highlights, it is very disappointing.”

“Maybe on Thursday [for the Manchester derby at the Etihad] we are going to have a better referee or maybe play without a referee – I’d prefer that,”
