The winger was initially booked for a cynical challenge on Kyle Walker during the final minutes of last night’s 3-0 defeat.

Walker was immediately taken off by his manager Pep Guardiola and replaced by James McAtee.

Giving his verdict on the red card, Kompany said: “It’s a striker trying to make a tactical foul, tackling with the technique of a striker unfortunately.

“No complaints, the technique was wrong and it could have been bad.

“I don’t think in the end he touches him too hard, it’s not full contact, it’s not a leg breaker, but it could have been a bad tackle and you have to accept the consequences.”
