Manchester United unhappy with City over 'tunnel cam'

Manchester United are furious with local rival Manchester City after video footage from the tunnel was released following last month’s derby at the Etihad Stadium.

David Moyes’ side suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Manuel Pellegrini’s side, with goals from Sergio Aguero (2), Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri leading to a 4-1 defeat.

And, the Red Devils are unhappy that a 15-minute film subsequently appeared on the Citizens’ website, with the champions subsequently writing to the Premier League to raise their concerns, according to The Daily Mail.

The footage shows Manchester United player-coach Ryan Giggs pursuing fourth official Michael Oliver down the tunnel at half-time, following Toure’s goal just before the interval.

The paper claims he told the official to ‘get a grip of him, man up and do your job’, although this footage was edited out by the Manchester City website department.

Manchester United have subsequently asked for clarification on whether this can be used in disciplinary action against players, the paper claims, although there doesn’t appear to be a case to answer for the Old Trafford legend.

Manchester City have not broken any rules with the tunnel cam, which they first introduced three-years ago, with footage regularly posted on their official website in the days after matches.
