‘They’ve done him dirty’ – Fans baffled by Sky Sports’ picture of Akanji in line-up graphic against Crystal Palace
FANS have been left baffled by Manuel Akanji picture in Sky Sports’ line-up graphic.
Ahead of the Man City clash with Crystal Palace the Swiss defender was shown in the line-up as part of the club’s defensive line.

In the line-up he appears to be a lot smaller than his fellow defenders
However, fans spotted that the picture used for him looked slightly off.
Akanji is taller than his partner Ruben Dias, but in the graphic, he looks significantly smaller.
The picture also does not feature his current hairstyle.
And fans that spotted the image took to social media to share their confusion.
One tweeted: “Why does Akanji look 5 foot 6 on the Sky lineup every time.
“He’s been with us since August man they’ve had plenty of time.”
A second commented: “WHAT WAS THAT FOR AKANJI SKY SPORTS?”
A third wrote: “Akanji’s picture on the Sky Sports Line-Up ”

A fourth said: “They did Akanji dirty ffs.”
While one thought that the broadcaster had swapped Akanji’s head with Bernardo Silva‘s body, they asked: “Why do sky crop Akanji face on Bernardo’s body.”
The defender joined Man City in September in a £15million deal from Borussia Dortmund.
His transfer is presumed to have taken place after Sky Sports could grab an image of his whole body for their match graphics.
