Video: ‘Scumbag’ Fernandinho blasted for elbow on Harry Kane during City vs Tottenham

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho was very lucky to escape punishment from the referee after he appeared to elbow Tottenham star Harry Kane twice.

In the 39th minute of the clash, Fernandinho angered Kane by leaping over his back and elbowing him to the floor as the pair contested in an aerial duel. Fernandinho didn’t stop the battle there though, the Brazilian shocked fans as he elbowed Kane in the back of the head whilst the pair were on the floor.

Pep Guardiola’s anchor man was very fortunate that the referee didn’t see this, he certainly would’ve been given his marching orders.
