Morgan Sanson explains angry reaction after kicking bottle into Aston Villa crowd


Aston Villa star Morgan Sanson has taken to social media on Saturday night, to provide an insight into his emotional reaction to being hauled off during the club’s meeting with Manchester United.

Coutinho secures a point

Sanson was part of the Claret and Blue line-up which played host to United earlier this evening.

After being sent packing from the FA Cup at the hands of Ralf Rangnick’s men earlier this week, Villa faced off with the Red Devils once more, eyeing revenge in a Premier League showdown.

This comes with the Frenchman, after seeing his poor pass capitalised on in ruthless fashion in the buildup to United’s 2nd of the day, having allowed his frustrations to get the better of him.

Upon seeing his number flash across the 4th official’s board, Sanson kicked a bottle on the sideline, which landed amongst the home support in attendance.

In turn, taking to social media this evening, the talented midfielder was keen to provide an explanation, and apology for his actions.

Sanson has revealed that disappointment with his personal role in Bruno Fernandes’ brace led to him lashing out, whilst assuring that ‘it wasn’t voluntary’:
