Manchester City have bottled it yet again. The Citizens, for the third year in a row, have been eliminated from the Champions League at the quarter final stage. They just don’t have that european pedigree. Kopites were understandably delighted with their failure and took to Twitter to voice their satisfaction but their comments weren’t to everybody’s taste. Bernardo Silva has hit out at Liverpool fans in a tweet, Kopites have been lapping it up.

City dumped out of Europe

Manchester City were this week knocked out of the Champions League by the seventh best team in the French Farmers League – sorry – French Ligue 1.

Pep Guardiola’s side fell to a 3-1 defeat against Lyon in Lisbon with key players making big mistakes along the way.

Ederson should’ve done better for all three goals and Raheem Sterling missed an open goal when the match was in the balance.

Bernardo Silva hits out at Liverpool fans

Given the recent vitriol between the two sides and the two fan bases it can come as no surprise that Kopites were over the moon with City being knocked out.

We just don’t want them to win the Champions League. They’re new money, they haven’t earned a seat at the top table. They haven’t bought and sold and wheeled and dealed and worked for their success, they’ve just spent and spent and spent.

Bernardo Silva wasn’t too happy with Liverpool fans celebrating his side’s exit, he tweeted out his displeasure…not the wisest move.

Kopites react to Silva tweet

One supporter pointed out that Silva’s reaction highlighted the weak mentality that keeps getting City knocked out of Europe.

 

John Aldridge even waded in, encouraging the midfielder to just chill out a bit.

Leanne Prescott thought the singling out of Kopites was a strange move.

Did Silva really forget that there’s a video of the City squad singing about Liverpool?

One Kopite hit the nail on the head.
