Manchester City Condemn Racist Actions of Supporter Following Damning Monkey Gestures Video

Victory at derby rivals City followed a 2-1 win over former boss Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, lifting United to fifth in the table after 16 games and easing pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After the full-time whistle, as Solskjaer congratulated his players on the pitch and began his walk back towards the dressing room tunnel, he spotted Sir Alex and other members of the Manchester United hierarchy in the director's box of the stadium.

United players Fred and Jesse Lingard reported being subjected to racist abuse at the Etihad Stadium, including a fan performing an apparent monkey gesture.

City said they were working with police "regarding an instance of objects being thrown on to the field of play".

"Manchester City FC are aware of a video circulating on social media which appears to show a supporter making racial gestures during the second half of the match against Manchester United this evening", a City statement after the game read.

Roy Keane made a change from his usually surly studio manner as he struggled to hide his delight with Manchester United's stellar performance in their derby victory against City on Saturday. The Brazilian midfielder spoke to the referee about the abuse and attacks.

India's last execution was conducted in 2015. "How many are there in jail for having made mistakes.they should also be shot dead". The police were ordered to preserve the body till December 9 by the Hyderabad High Court on Friday.


"I absolutely did not see this coming".

Supt Chris Hill, from GMP, said: "I hope this arrest shows that we are taking this matter extremely seriously".

Manchester City said they operate a "zero-tolerance policy" regarding discrimination of any kind, adding that anyone found guilty of racial abuse will be banned for life.

"I don't think beating Tottenham was a big deal at home, but that win (over City) will give the players a lot of confidence as they have been criticised - nobody likes to be criticised".

Marcus Rashford won and then converted a penalty before Anthony Martial fired in a second after being picked out by Daniel James.

"The top four is in sight but we need to look after our own results and keep trying to get the three points, and keep improving", he told the club's official website .
