The forward picked up the ball inside City‘s half and darted towards goal.

Djenepo quickly spotted Ortega miles off his line and curled the ball over the German and into the back of the net.

That sparked criticism on social media with many fans questioning the keeper’s positioning and overall ability.

One supporter wrote: “What is Ortega doing 😭.”

Another commented: “Sub off Ortega.”
