Man City deny 'chant by players celebrating title win mocks Hillsborough or Sean Cox

Manchester City have said that any suggestion a chant apparently sung by some of their players as they celebrated winning the Premier League title mocks Sean Cox or the Hillsborough disaster ‘is entirely without foundation’.
A video emerged on social media on Tuesday which appeared to show City players and staff singing a distasteful version of Liverpool’s ‘Allez, Allez, Allez’ song as they travelled on a plane following Sunday’s victory at Brighton which clinched the title.
The chant makes reference to Liverpool fans ‘crying in the stands’ and being ‘battered on the streets’ at last year’s Champions League final in Kiev, which Liverpool lost 3-1 to Real Madrid. The song also contains the lyric ‘victims of it all’.
Liverpool fan Sean Cox was attacked by Roma supporters ahead of their Champions League semi-final at Anfield.
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.’

    How is that not related Sean Cox, the only thing people’s could possibly think of when referring to a fan being battered on the street is Sean Cox. That was the main incident surrounding fan violence. Even if it somehow wasn’t about the most high profile attack on a fan who was put in a coma for almost a year, and it was about someone else, it’s an absolutely awful thing to sing about, especially considering one of their fans was recently put in a coma. The fans singing it is one thing, but professional footballers singing about fans being attacked and other professionals being injured is disgraceful and the City players should all be fined by the FA.

    when a fan mocking rival player/team/fan, for me it is normal. but when a professional player paid million of dollars mocking other team and their fans, i dont know how low i can put this bunch, so cowardice, pathetic, disgusting.
