Manchester City fans charged by UEFA for booing Champions League anthem
UEFA to take action against Manchester City after supporters jeered the Champions League anthem on Wednesday night
October 22nd, 2015
Incredibly, it appears that UEFA are to take Manchester City to task following supporters jeering the Champions League anthem on Wednesday night.
City were in action against Sevilla, with Manuel Pellegrini’s side scoring a late winner to claim three points, although UEFA have taken issue with the fact that a large portion of fans decided to boo the song that is traditionally played before kick-off.
City supporters clearly have no affection for UEFA who have imposed financial fair play rules. This has led to the club being fined to the tune of £50m in 2013, with a conviction that the Manchester club have been unfairly singled out.
In addition, Yaya Toure was racially abused in Moscow two years ago only for the Russian club to be given a paltry fine and it appears that UEFA are going to now take the unprecedented step of charging City for the action of their supporters.
Such a decision is unlikely to quieten fans when it comes to the playing of the Champions League anthem!
