Manchester City Fans Mocked For ‘Tragic’ Champions League Final Celebrations

Manchester City fans have been mocked by rival football supporters for the "tragic" scenes outside the Etihad that greeted their Champions League semi-final triumph.

Two goals from Riyad Mahrez meant Pep Guardiola's side cruised past Paris Saint-Germain 4-1 on aggregate and into the club's first ever Champions League final. And they got a send-off - of sorts - as fans were filmed celebrating outside the ground by Sky Sports reporter Fraser Dainton.

Big groups of people meeting is not being encouraged right now - and we'll leave you to judge whether the City faithful would have been better off just staying at home.

Fans are engaging in the traditional Yaya Toure/Kolo Toure song - enthusiastically led by a fan in a replica home shirt. But the volume sounds rather muted and the celebrations a little spartan.

"Absolute scenes mate. Had to put the volume on my phone down. Eardrums were about to burst," responded one fan on Twitter.

Others pointed out that Manchester United had more fans on the pitch at Old Trafford on Sunday for their protest against their ownership or compared City's celebrations to a school sports day.

It was undoubtedly a tough night for City fans to be kept out of the Etihad as, despite some unseasonably bad weather, their side dominated an increasingly ragged PSG side which went down to 10 men after Angel Di Maria's petulant red card.

City will find out tonight whether they will face Chelsea or Real Madrid in the final - and should also discover soon if any fans will be allowed to travel and attend the match at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul on 29 May.

Discussions regarding tickets and international travel are ongoing between the club and UEFA.

However if Istanbul is going to be, ahem, thronging with City fans like the streets of Manchester were last night, we probably need to give the Turkish authorities the maximum time to prepare.
