Details have emerged of how Manchester United players apparently revelled in spoiling Manchester City’s title celebrations last weekend.
City needed a win to secure a third Premier League title in seven years but despite roaring into a 2-0 half-time lead, United hit back to claim a 3-2 win and put their derby rivals’ celebrations on ice.
The result was sweet revenge for United, who had suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Pep Guardiola’s side back in the autumn, when the visitors’ over-zealous celebrations led to a tunnel melee, while there were also rows in the dressing room after with City were accused of being disrespectful by playing music too loudly.
The Sun claims the Red Devils made their point by turning up the music volume in the dressing room after the game, having traded insults on the pitch.
It’s claimed the United players discovered the City squad had already booked tables at restaurants that evening to celebrate their title success, to which one United player is alleged to have said: “Booked tables have you? We’ll take your f***ing tables.”
It is added that academy graduate Jesse Lingard is said to have been the most vocal in goading City’s players.
