Pep Guardiola Apologises for Man City Players Filmed Singing Liverpool Chant

Manchester City boss has apologised for any offence his players and staff caused after a social media clip emerged from their flight back from Brighton last Sunday.

The video appeared to show members of City team and backroom staff singing a disgusting version of Liverpool’s ‘Allez, Allez, Allez’ chant. City had just retained the Premier League title with a 4-1 defeat of Brighton on the final day of the season.

The Blues version of the song allegedly made references to the attack on Liverpool fan Sean Cox by Roma fans in April 2018 and the Hillsborough tragedy.

Manchester City denied those allegations in a statement, but Guardiola said in a press conference ahead of the FA Cup final against Watford:

“It was not to offend the people about what happened in Hillsborough or the guy over what happened against Roma.

“You think, just for one second, you could imagine we try to offend about these tragedies of the Liverpool world? It’s incredible.

“We were happy for ourselves. If someone was offended, I’m sorry, I apologise, but it was never our intention. To win the Premier League is difficult against one incredible contender.”

The Spaniard admitted he was also concerned the video had been leaked by someone who was on the flight. He added:

“You know my opinion over social media.”
