Former Arsenal star Bernd Leno furiously kicks TV camera after Man City goal

Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno let his frustrations show by kicking at a camera after conceding a third goal against Manchester City.

City thumped the Cottagers 4-0 on Saturday to return to the top of the Premier League table in what was a commanding performance.

Josko Gvardiol surprisingly scored two goals in the win, with his first an excellent run and finish after a neat passing move.

His second of the afternoon was far less stylish as the defender just bundled the ball in at the back post and under Leno.

But it was enough for the Fulham goalkeeper, once of Man City’s title rivals Arsenal, to angrily react.

And one of TV cameras taking the brunt of his frustration.


In footage from TNT Sports, a camera was seemingly positioned on one of the poles that holds the goals up at each end.

As the City players ran away in celebration after Gvardiol’s goal, it panned round to the right and faced Leno on the floor.

However, he quickly saw it turn in his direction and he kicked out at it with his right foot, with the German clearly annoyed at conceding.

Matters were made worse for Fulham in stoppage-time when Issa Diop brought down Julian Alvarez in the box and was sent off for a second yellow card.

Alvarez was the man to take the penalty and he did so expertly as he fired into the bottom-right corner, with Leno going the other way.

Phil Foden also got amongst the goals for City earlier in the game as they further strengthened their hopes of winning the title.

They lead Arsenal by two points with as many games left to play, although the Gunners will overtake them if they beat Manchester United on Sunday.

Fulham on the other hand are set to finish between 12th and 14th as they fell to their 17th league defeat of the season.

Their most recent victory came in mid-March, with Marco Silva’s side enduring a disappointing end to the campaign.
