Manchester City defender Ruben Dias was spotted using a somewhat unorthodox method to arrange his side’s defensive wall whilst facing a Liverpool free-kick during Sunday’s Premier League match-up.
Both sides went into the break all square at 0-0 and although the match has been a hotly contested encounter, one of the funnier moments came from Dias.
After facing a Liverpool free-kick, Oleksandr Zinchenko was instructed to occupy the bottom half of the Citizen’s wall.
A tactic fans are seeing more and more frequently is where a player will lay on the ground on his side, facing his own side’s keeper.
However, whilst preparing to block a free-kick should it go low, Zinchenko obviously didn’t position himself correctly which prompted team-mate Ruben Dias to drag the 24-year-old by his neck.
