RB Leipzig defender Benjamin Henrichs says Manchester City shouldn't have been awarded a penalty in last night's Champions League clash between the two sides.

Manchester City opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Henrichs was adjudged to have handled in the area. But it wasn't a penalty for him.
"I spoke to the referee again and he told me that he didn't see a handball, but that the VAR had alerted him, so he went and checked the replay and awarded the penalty. For me it wasn't a penalty, but when you lose 7-0 you don't have to talk about it too much," said Henrichs, who was naturally disappointed after the defeat.
"I have never lost 7-0 in my career. It's a brutal and bitter night for us. Haaland is physically very strong. He has a lot to offer, it is very difficult to defend against him," noted Henrichs.
