Man City midfielder Fernandinho: F*** VAR!

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho was still fuming over an hour after being dumped out of the Champions League by Tottenham.

The Brazilian gave the two-word response in the mixed zone after the game as the Blues' quadruple hopes were left in tatters by Tottenham, reports the Mirror.

"F*** VAR!" he exclaimed as he walked past reporters.

City thought they had scored the goal that would have sent them into the last four to take on Ajax when Raheem Sterling struck what would have been his hat-trick in stoppage time.

But VAR was consulted and found Sergio Aguero was offside in the build-up to the goal - sending Spurs through into the semi-finals.

A 4-3 defeat at City saw Spurs win their quarterfinal tie 4-4 on the away goals rule.
