FA Cup final: Nathan Ake says Man City will not panic if on wrong end of another controversial call
Nathan Ake has promised Manchester City won't be spooked by more bad refereeing against United in the first all-Manchester FA Cup final on Saturday.
City are still angry at the way they crumbled at Old Trafford in January's derby having led until the last 12 minutes.
Pep Guardiola's players were so incensed that Bruno Fernandes' leveller was allowed to stand despite Marcus Rashford being offside, they lost concentration for Rashford to then score the winner four minutes later.
'We scored in the second half and had it under control. We were on top until the equaliser,' recalled Ake.
'It was a surprise to everyone it was given. From our point of view, he was clearly interfering with play.
'After that, we lost ourselves a little bit. We wanted to score straight away, didn't focus anymore and that is why we conceded the second.
'But I think it has turned out to be a learning curve. We've learned from that moment not to panic when things like this happen.
'They will happen in the future as well, it is about how we react because on that occasion we didnt react well.
