VIDEO: Man City fan mocked after trying to taunt Sir Alex Ferguson leaving stadium

A Man City fan has been mocked on social media after trying to taunt Sir Alex Ferguson when leaving the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

After the game, a video was published onto social media, showing a Sky Blues supporter constantly shouting ‘City, City, City’.

Fergie, surrounded by some security, managed to ignore it as he made his way home after watching his side battered 4-1 against their rivals, with Sky Sports cameras showing him looking glum.

The Man City fans also trolled Sir Alex Ferguson with a cheeky banner in the stands, mocked by a four-word message unfurled by the home supporters.

The banner read: “Not in my lifetime.”

The quote refers to a comment from Ferguson way back in 2009. He was asked if Man City could be the dominant force in Manchester and therefore make United underdogs in the derby.

But Fergie, whose Man Utd side were champions at the time, was having none of it.

Since retiring in 2013, though, United have failed to win the Premier League – whereas City have five titles in that time.

City fans were understandably loving it on Sunday as Pep Guardiola’s men put in an impressive performance against their arch-rivals.


Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez scored two each as Man Utd, and most of of Harry Maguire crumbled under pressure, not even fighting backin the second half.

Commenting on the sign, one City fan wrote on Twitter: “How embarrassing for Ferguson that he’s back at the Etihad and we pull out this.

“I bet he regrets saying those four words so much. Statement banner.”

Man of the Match: Kevin de Bruyne

Interim United boss Ralf Rangnick admitted there is a gulf in class between the two teams right now.

He said: “It’s difficult against a team like Man City, once you are 3-1 down against the best team in possession of the ball on the planet, it’s difficult.

“I cannot blame anyone for not having tried and put effort into that game, but it was difficult after the third goal.

“After 28 games you’re as far apart from each team as the table shows (22 points).

“The second half showed that if they are in their momentum and if they are 3-1 up then it is almost impossible to keep them away from your own goal.”

Man City manager Pep Guardiola: “It was a good one, especially the second half. It was one of the highest levels we have played in years. In the first half they had more energy than the second half. In the second half they struggled to press us as a consequence of the first half.

“They played a 4-2-4 and were very aggressive for Ralf and without Cristiano Ronaldo they can do that. They were incredibly impressive. We struggled without build up.

“In the first half we had more chances on the counter-attack rather than possession. When we were in their half, we played really well but the problem we had was to arrive there, to get there and to drop the opponent in their half.

“But in the second half we had more personality to play more in the lines and the movement from everyone was excellent. Every decision we made in the game was good, that’s why we won the game.”
