Nathan Ake's crucial goal for Man City against Fulham 'should have been disallowed', admits PGMOL chief Howard Webb
- Webb admits Ake's goal was offside
- Akanji blocked out Leno from an offside position
- Man City beat Fulham 5-1
WHAT HAPPENED? The Dutch defender scored a crucial goal for Manchester City against Fulham last weekend which put Pep Guardiola's side 2-1 up just before the break. Ake's goal was checked by VAR after the initial replays suggested Manuel Akanji was in an offside position when the Dutchman headed the ball into the net from Phil Foden's corner.
After a thorough check, VAR upheld the referee's decision and the goal was awarded. But now, Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) chief Howard Webb has admitted that the goal was wrongly given as Akanji was clearly obstructing Bernd Leno's vision while being in an offside position.
