Last night was Vincent Kompany’s testimonial game. The match was organised to honour the legendary centre back and raise money for the homeless charity Tackle4MCR, which the Belgian started with Liverpool-born Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham.

The game honoured the Premier League winning defender in the most apt way possible as he was ruled out of his own celebration with injury. The match also served to highlight another aspect of City, their consistently embarrassing fan base. Five minutes into a game organised to honour their greatest ever captain, the Blues fans were singing about Steven Gerrard.

How utterly embarrassing. Just to be clear, Citeh: we aren’t angry, we aren’t upset, we aren’t the victims here – we are truly embarrassed for you and pity your need to mark your big night by giving us attention. Twitter has reacted to the chants.

Reds were quick to point out how apt it was that during a night meant to celebrate what it means to be City, they chose to dedicate their decibels to a Liverpool captain.

Liverpool outlets just outright cringed for the supporters in the stadium, pointing out how odd of a choice the song was.

Football enthusiasts noted how the decision exposed just how much heart the Premier League champions lack.

 

Twitter users thought it was an indication of just how far City have to come in order to match rival fan bases.

Manchester United fans joined in with the condemnation, saying they weren’t surprised.

One fan hit the nail on the head with their tweet. Pointing out that City fans just aren’t cut out for the top level.
