Manchester City have released intriguing behind the scenes footage of the weekend’s derby with Manchester United using their ‘tunnel cam’ to reveal what really goes on away from the prying eyes of the public on match-day.
Beginning with the arrival of the United squad at the Etihad stadium, the footage reflects all the important events throughout the day, with interviews, meetings and then the nervy walk through the tunnel all documented in the build-up to kick-off.
Sky Sports' well known reporter Geoff Shreeves features regularly with the players, including sharing a joke with City's defender Pablo Zabaleta as the team prepares to return to the pitch for the second half.
However, it is the end of the first half that really grabs your attention, with a less-than-impressed David Moyes storming down the tunnel towards the away changing room. Midfielder and coach Ryan Giggs is then see pursuing fourth official Michael Oliver after he felt that Matija Nastasic should have been shown a red card in the first half, shouting "Get a grip of him. Man up and do your job."
Following the conclusion of the match, where United were trounced 4-1 after two goals from Sergio Aguero along with Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri were enough to see off Wayne Rooney's fine free kick late on, the England striker was seen exchanging shirts with City frontman Alvaro Negredo as the pair walked down the tunnel.
And to top it all off, the home side celebrated with pizza all round as slabs of the favoured meal was delivered to the changing room, with Vincent Kompany and Toure completing the post-match interviews with Shreeves.
