Police To Investigate Vincent Kompany Racism Chants

TV footage showed racist abuse during the Manchester derby.

Police are set to take a look at post match footage from Monday’s Premier League derby game between Manchester United and Manchester City according to The Daily Mail.

It has been revealed that there are allegations of racist chanting against Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany.

Greater Manchester Police revealed that they have received no complaints from either club or from Kompany himself.

But they have been made aware of the accusations by local newspaper The Manchester Evening News.

Kompany was being interviewed by Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves when the abuse is alleged to have taken place.

A man can be heard shouting something in the background and police are now set to take a look at the footage to determine whether an offence has been committed.

The police said that they will be taking a close look at the incident and would work with the two clubs to discover what happened.

City’s 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Monday closed the gap in the Premier League to twelve points.

Roberto Mancini’s men know they face a mammoth task to overhaul United at this stage but the game served as a marker for next season.

Mancini insisted the game showed that City were not twelve points behind United in terms of quality.
