Man City star Kevin De Bruyne ferociously shoves Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta during touchline altercation

Man City superstar Kevin De Bruyne ferociously shoved Mikel Arteta following an event where the Arsenal manager kicked the ball away as the Man City no. 17 was ready to take the throw-in during their trip to the Emirates.

It was the top-of-the-table clash for the two heavy giants where Man City eased past the Gunners with a 3-1 win as De Bruyne was among the scorers and further provided an assist to Erling Haaland’s goal.

The atmosphere was rocking and full of noise as players got involved within themselves on one or two occasions as well as with the touchline staff which defined the magnitude of the game.

Kevin De Bruyne is Man City’s biggest superstar since his joining from the German club VfL Wolfsburg and the Belgian worked under Mikel Arteta for a few years.

Mikel Arteta joined Manchester City as an assistant coach in 2016, after ending his playing career with the club and the Brit worked under City’s head coach Pep Guardiola.

Arteta was part of the coaching staff that led the club to win two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, and two League Cups during his time there before leaving to become the head coach of Arsenal in December 2019.

The incident between Kevin De Bruyne and Mikel Arteta left fans divided as some are defending the greatest midfielder of the Premier League and some are aiming a dig into him.

“Arteta has had that coming to him all season, TBF,” one fan said in response to the incident.

Another posted: “Arteta started it by kicking the ball away when De Bruyne went to get it. So childish and a poor example.”

“Why did Arteta do that, though? Kevin De Bruyne was so right to push him, TBH,” a third Twitter user wrote.

And a fourth said: “Well done, De Bruyne. He was right to push Arteta [out] of the way.”

While one fan tweeted: “A bit surprised at De Bruyne shoving Arteta… but it also shows how much this means to them.”
