Gabby Agbonlahor accuses Morgan Gibbs-White of ‘WWE acting’ after Rodri red card
Latest Nottingham Forest news from NottinghamshireLive as Gabby Agbonlahor criticises Morgan Gibbs-White’s response which led to Rodri being sent off for Man City
Gabby Agbonlahor has launched a scathing dig at Morgan Gibbs-White for his reaction which led to Rodri being sent off for Manchester City against Nottingham Forest.
Pep Guardiola’s team were comfortably leading the Reds 2-0 before a clash between the City midfielder and Gibbs-White resulted in Rodri being shown a red card for violent conduct after he appeared to grab the Forest star by the throat.
The sending-off did not alter the result as City were able to see out the match and maintain their 100% winning record at the start of 2023/24.
But Agbonlahor could not hide his frustration at Gibbs-White for the way he reacted before Rodri was given his marching orders by referee Anthony Taylor. Rodri will now miss City’s next three matches, including a huge clash against Arsenal on October 8.
“Was it enough for Morgan Gibbs-White to go down? No it wasn’t,” Agbonlahor said on talkSPORT.
“He should be on WWE Gibbs-White. It was outstanding acting. I would never go down like that. Out of embarrassment of your friends seeing it on TV.”
