If reports are to be believed, the referee will reportedly undergo a surgery tomorrow at the Royal London Hospital. After the match, Manchester City manager spoke about the incident and said, “If he dies, he dies. There is always a danger with anaesthetics, no? Maybe that would be justice for certain crimes.
