Man City fan left covered in blood after being attacked on tram after Huddersfield match

A Man City fan was left covered in blood after being attacked on a packed tram after the FA Cup match against Huddersfield Town.

Footage shows violence erupt with the fan – wearing a Manchester City shirt – left with blood coming from the right side of his head, forehead and cheek.

Police are aware of the incident, which involved a small number of people, and are urging for witnesses as well as the Man City fan being punched in the face off camera, to come forward and report what happened.

A new clip surfaced on social media, showing the Man City fan who was attacked, hanging out with mates while still having blood down the side of his head.

While no doubt he could do with some medical attention to check him over, it seems he was happy enough singing chants with pals.

Despite this, Head of Metrolink Danny Vaughan said as per Manchester Evening News that the transport service has been made aware of the incident that took place following the game on Sunday evening.

They encourage anyone who witnessed the incident, and the victim involved, to report it to the police.

Danny Vaughan, Head of Metrolink at Transport for Greater Manchester, said: “TfGM has been made aware of an incident that took place on a Metrolink tram this evening following the Manchester City V Huddersfield game.

“Nobody has come forward at this stage to report the incident to Metrolink or Great Manchester Police (GMP), but we would encourage any witnesses and the person affected to get in touch with GMP directly as soon as possible.

“The safety of our passengers and staff is absolutely critical and we will be working closely with our Metrolink Operator, KeolisAmey Metrolink (KAM) and GMP to assist in any way we can.”

Twitter users reacted on seeing a Man City fan left covered in blood after being attacked on tram after the match against Huddersfield…

@TerrierNigel: Absolutely pathetic. Whoever the so called town fan / aggressor is should be banned from football for rest of his life aswell as feel full force of judicial system. PATHETIC #HTAFC NO PLACE FOR VIOLENCE AT FOOTBALL

@tjhs: Have people stopped to consider that fighting each other over 22 men knocking a ball around for 90 mins is incredibly fucking sad?

@BroganRoganTrev: Football, or any other sport, is a game. It is an event, a spectator sport for most of us – and while you support – it is not life or death and is meant to be fun and a laugh with family or pals. It is not this, was never this and never should be this. This is crap – real crap!

@JuceeRob: They’re on public transport with CCTV.. easily identifiable 😒

@albalders39: Never have I ever understood violence in football. Banter fine. Play the game win or lose whatever but never fight over who supports who. Ridiculous

@LyricalBen: What is the point in needless violence. Just support your teams win or lose without all this macho vile abusive behaviour ls towards one another.

@sammightsay_: Genuinely boggles the mind that people risk a criminal record or even something much more serious over a game of footy. No one thinks you’re hard, you’re a moron, grow up and go enjoy your day out with your mates ffs

@fortis_andy: If you go to football to do stuff like this then you are waste of a life.

@scouse_Pep: Huddersfield fans are a bunch of scum bags, throwing coins into the away end both times I’ve been, would nothing more than to see them go down. Vile club

@b_daws19: I really don’t get how this is still a thing in football culture, fair enough football hooliganism was big back in the 20th century but anyone going to games purely looking for fights these days are just proper sad bastards

@keegan_kil80990: Embarrassing from Huddersfield fans

@jameswardg: Yikes hope @htafc find them and ban them. Oh and that @gmpolice also arrest them.

The game itself saw Kevin De Bruyne make his comeback from injury as Man City thrashed their lower league opponents.

Phil Foden netted twice, Julian Alvarez was on target and fit-again Jeremy Doku also got on the scoresheet along with an own goal from Ben Jackson.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, speaking to BBC: “A great night, difficult in the first minutes. They defend so low, so well. The expectation of a City manager is to play this game like a final, an important competition, how humble we are, how we fight for each other. I’m really pleased I am still managing this group of players and to go through.”

On Phil Foden: “He had all the responsibility. He doesn’t feel the pressure. Of courses he will get to another level because he is so young. He will listen, he is so competitive and playing in those central positions is so decisive. Last games he has scored a lot of goals and the partnership with Julian [Alvarez] is doing really well.”

Kevin De Bruyne: “I thought it was better for the first minutes to play for the second half when the game was more open. Kevin is something unique in the world. For him to play 30 minutes was perfect, Jeremy [Doku] as well. Jack [Grealish] played good too so it was a good afternoon for all of us.”

On controlling high ball on the touchline: The problem is the manager doesn’t give me an opportunity to show my level. I need to speak with him!”

More on De Bruyne: “Kevin must know how much the people love him. He’s incredible. Kevin, until he decides to leave or retires, will forever be one of the most beloved players. We are really pleased for him.”

Huddersfield boss Darren Moore, speaking to BBC Sport: “I’ve got no fault with the players. We set our stall out and disrupted everything. Once the goal goes in we lost a bit of concentration for 10 minutes and then regained it. I take nothing away from them, we know what a good and a fluid team they are. Credit to the boys in terms of how they went about the game today.

“What they do is, the ball sped is fantastic, they test you in wide areas but they’ve got inverted runners so there’s so many aspects of the game you have to stay concentrating on. It was a wonderful learning experience.”

On new signings: “I’m really pleased with Bojan Radulovic and Alex Matos, what they gave us in midfield and up front. The supporters must have saw what they’re going to give us for the second half of the season. Those two alone will improve the team.”
