Liverpool Fans Rage At Man City Supporters For Singing About Gerrard During Kompany's Testimonial

Liverpool Fans Rage At Man City Supporters For Singing About Gerrard During Kompany's Testimonial

Liverpool fans were far from impressed with Manchester City supporters after they sang about Steven Gerrard during Vincent Kompany's testimonial.

Five minutes into Wednesday's game between Manchester City Legends and Premier League All-Stars, the home fans chanted "Steve Gerrard, Gerrard, he gave it to Demba Ba" even though he wasn't playing.

The song is in obvious reference to when Gerrard slipped over during a game against Chelsea in 2014, a moment that cost Liverpool the Premier League title.

Fans across the country continue to troll Gerrard, but Liverpool supporters were left perplexed by the chants considering they came during Man City's greatest ever player's farewell match.

As for the actual game, over 51,000 fans turned up at the Etihad to watch Kompany's testimonial end in a 2-2 draw, but the Belgium defender was ruled out with a hamstring injury.

The Belgian defender poked fun at himself in his press conference ahead of kick-off.

"You might have noticed, I'm not playing - I just had to be injured for my own testimonial," he said.

Martin Petrov opened the scoring for City in the opening minute after a comical mix-up between Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville .

The All-Stars hit back thanks to goals from Robbie Keane and Robin van Persie.

Benjani scored in the dying stages to make it 2-2 on an entertaining evening at the Etihad.

"I'm the proudest man in the world," said Kompany. "It's been a special day. It's been a perfect evening even though I didn't play. I couldn't have wished for more."

The game was organised to raise funds for Kompany's drive to help the homeless of Manchester for the Tackle4MCR campaign.
