Following Manchester City’s resounding 4-0 victory over Fluminense in the Saudi Arabian FIFA Club World Cup 2023 final, Kyle Walker and Felipe Melo got into a heated argument. Despite being brief, the altercation went viral very quickly because players from both teams moved quickly to defuse the situation.
Due to Felipe Melo’s well-known loud voice and assertive personality, it is common to see him engage in conflict with opponents. This incident comes after his previous controversy involving taunting River Plate supporters in Buenos Aires during an away Copa Libertadores match.
The two players’ obvious rivalry was apparent, but there were questions about when their altercation occurred. The altercation seemed needless now that the game was over and City was the clear winner. Fortunately, other players’ intervention stopped the situation from getting worse.
The story that stood out was City’s commanding on-field performance, which Grealish helped the team to achieve, despite the post-match drama. A thrilling match was made even more intense by the incident involving Walker and Melo, which left fans ecstatic after seeing City’s dominant start to the season.
Against Liverpool, these are Arsenal’s three main players who will miss.
