CHAOS unfolded in the tunnel at the end of Atletico Madrid’s tie with Manchester City as Šime Vrsaljko tried to start a fight.
The defender had to be held back by multiple members of Atletico staff as he tried to fight several members of the City team.

But that did not stop him from throwing goalkeeper gloves at a City staff member before appearing to spit in the direction of Kyle Walker.
The two squads were separated by a handrail as they walked up the stairs of the Wanda Metropolitano tunnel towards the changing rooms.
But Vrsaljko did everything in his power to get at Aymeric Laporte and Walker, who was infuriated by the throw of the gloves.
The Atletico right-back completely lost his cool however, gesturing aggressively and appearing to spit when he reached the top of the stairs.
The Croatian was also a villain at the Etihad along with Stefan Savic – the pair both tried to wind up Jack Grealish by pulling at his hair.
Savic pulled the same trick on Grealish towards the end of the second leg and the pair also clashed in the tunnel.
The Montenegro defender sparked a mass melee as the clock hit 90 at the Wanda Metropolitano.
He charged at Phil Foden, who was lying on the sideline after being swiped by Felipe – earning the Brazilian a red card.
Savic tried to drag Foden off the pitch as Atleti desperately searched for an equaliser.
That led to players and coaches from both sides brawl in the corner.
Savic continued his disgusting rampage by headbutting Raheem Sterling and then grabbing Grealish’s hair after the £100million man appeared to make a comment.
However, despite the aid of VAR, Savic somehow escaped with just a yellow card as City held on for a 0-0 draw and progressed to the Champions League semi-finals.
BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand said: “Distasteful behaviour from the Atletico players, they should be embarrassed with some of the antics they have gone on with.
“You have to say, talking about football, well done to Atletico Madrid as they made Manchester City play in a way we haven’t seen for a long time, took them out of their rhythm and their stride.
“But some of the stuff towards the end was not what you want to see on a football pitch.”
