Manchester City: Fans agree with Vincent Kompany that Champions League anthem booing should stop

Sky Blues legend Vincent Kompany has had his say on booing the Champions League anthem, with the Belgian thinking it should cease. 

Kompany, who won 12 trophies in total during his time at Manchester City, playing a crucial role in delivering the club’s Premier League title haul, opened up over the tradition of supporters to boo the Champions League anthem following a hostile relationship with UEFA.

In a new book, titled ‘Treble Triumph’, the ex-City skipper highlighted his views on the supporters’ stance (via Manchester Evening News).

The European footballing body has imposed numerous punishments and fines on the club since their arrival on the biggest stage in club football in 2011, with fans starting to jeer the anthem in response.

UEFA are also set to fine the club for alleged breaches relating to Financial Fair Play rules (The Athletic via Daily Mail).

However, the City legend appears to have appealed to supporters to end the tradition, with most fans appearing to concur.

The amount of respect Sky Blues supporters have for Kompany is unrivalled, but even without their former captain’s influence, the movement could’ve been dying down naturally judging by their responses – with some diehard fans calling for an end to the ‘small-time mentality’.

Here’s what they said on Twitter:

Will Pep Guardiola leave Manchester City this summer?

Yes

Yes

No
