Ofcourse The Penalty Was Controversial - Middlesbrough Boss, Steve Agnew,Speaks On Man City Clash

Middlesbrough Boss Steve Agnew was left infuriated after a controversial Manchester City penalty denied Middlesbrough a crucial victory in their battle against relegation. Leading 1-0 thanks to Alvaro Negredo's opener at the Riverside Stadium, Boro were pegged back in contentious circumstances when Leroy Sane went down under a Marten de Roon challenge.
With Sane appearing to already be falling before the contact with De Roon, Boro were riled by Kevin Friend's decision to point to the spot, especially once Sergio Aguero had converted the resulting spot kick.

The penalty was controversial, From where I was, I didn't think it was a penalty. I'm disappointed with the way the player went down. Looking back, was the referee in a good position to give a penalty? Every point matters but what you saw was the response from the players; their head didn't go down, they kept going, kept fighting and we got there. It's been a difficult season but if we continue to show that fighting spirit right to the end we're more than capable of winning football matches.”
