Toure’s stoppage time effort bounced off the back of Kelechi
Iheanacho into the net. Toure argued that the ball was heading straight
into the net, and the deflection from Iheancho was immaterial. Majority
of Manchester City fans back his claim for the goal.
“When you shoot on target I think it is your goal because the intention was to score so can we do?
“We’ll see what the verdict is but as far as I’m concerned, it’s mine,” he told the club’s official website, www.mcfc.co.uk.
City fans also agree with Toure as 60 per cent of them who took part
in an online poll conducted by the club’s website voted that the goal be
credited to him. Forty per cent of the 10,120 fans who voted however
disagreed, insisting that the goal be credited to Iheanacho.
