Greater Manchester Police reviewing CCTV footage which appears to show City captain Vincent Kompany being racially abused.
The Manchester Evening news are today reporting that Police are looking into allegations that Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany was racially abused by a fan following City’s 2-1 win over United on Monday night.
Although police have praised fans for their behaviour, they are now reviewing CCTV footage of an interview with Kompany during which it is claimed that a fan can be heard directing racist taunts towards the player.
A force spokesman said: "Greater Manchester Police has not received a complaint about racist abuse directed towards any players following last night's fixture, however we have now been made aware of this footage by the Manchester Evening News."
"The Force will work with both clubs and review any footage to investigate the incident.
"Racist abuse will not be tolerated by Greater Manchester Police and we will thoroughly investigate this matter."
