Manchester City not planning to lodge complaint over Herrera incident

The Manchester United midfielder was caught on video apparently spitting as he walked over a City crest during Saturday’s derby at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City have no plans to lodge a complaint against Ander Herrera after he was seen seemingly spitting in the direction of their club badge during Saturday’s Manchester derby.

Video has emerged showing the Manchester United midfielder apparently spitting as he walked over a large City crest at half-time at the Etihad Stadium.

The footage was captured as the players left the pitch at half-time, with United 2-0 down but on the way to a stirring 3-2 comeback.

Press Association Sport understands City are aware of the incident but do not intend to escalate it by making any formal representations to the Football Association.

Players are often seen spitting on the field before, during and after matches and as Herrera was walking directly towards the tunnel, with no deviation, it would surely prove difficult to establish any malign intent.

A United spokesman has also been credited in several newspapers distancing the 28-year-old Spain international from any provocative motives.

“Ander has seen the footage of the incident and is mortified at any suggestion that his actions were deliberate,” said the statement.

“It was entirely accidental and there was no intent whatsoever.”

Press Association Sport has contacted United and Herrera’s representatives for comment.
