Online rumors that Mateo Kovacic celebrating a goal against his team might make one of the wildest Premier League matches in recent memory even more bizarre.
Some Man City fans claim that Kovacic can be seen pumping his fist following Cole Palmer’s late penalty kick equalizer on X, formerly known as Twitter.
The midfielder from Croatia played for Chelsea for five years, totaling more than 200 matches, before moving to Manchester City in June.
The Champions League victory over Pep Guardiola’s team in 2021 was the high point of Kovacic’s Stamford Bridge tenure, and some people tend to believe that Chelsea is still the team he still supports.
At the end of a thrilling match, City appeared to be winning, but Ruben Dias took down Armando Broja in the area, and Palmer scored from close range in injury time.
Palmer performed admirably the entire game, maintaining composure under duress to defeat Ederson and save a point for the home team.
The 21-year-old, who was just called up for the first time to the England team, seemed to enjoy playing against his old teammates and showcasing his skills to Guardiola.
Kovacic, on the other hand, is being accused of being disrespectful to his current employers and of showing devotion to Chelsea in response to Palmer’s goal.
Although Kovacic is moving back into position, ready for the game to continue, the motion is actually hardly noticeable, but it hasn’t stopped the rumors.
