Manchester City Deny Players Were Singing About Seán Cox

Manchester City Deny Players Were Singing About Seán Cox
By PJ Browne Updated

Manchester City have rejected suggestions that a group of their players ridiculed either Seán Cox or the Hillsborough disaster following Sunday's title-clinching victory against Brighton.

On Tuesday, a video surfaced showing Manchester City players and staff on a flight following the game. It features them singing a version of the chant 'Allez, Allez, Allez', one which mocks Liverpool's defeat to Real Madrid in last year's Champions League final and contains a line about their fans being "battered in the streets" and being "victims of it all".

All the way to Kiev / To end up in defeat / Crying in the stands / And battered in the streets / Kompany injured Salah / Victims of it all

Meathman Seán Cox suffered life-changing injuries when he was attacked before the Champions League semi-final between Liverpool and Roma at Anfield on April 24th last year.

On Tuesday night, a City spokesperson said:

"The song in question, which has been a regular chant during the 2018/19 season, refers to the 2018 Uefa Champions League final in Kiev. Any suggestion that the lyrics relate to Sean Cox or the Hillsborough tragedy is entirely without foundation."
