Manchester City players have been filmed appearing to mock Liverpool while celebrating their latest Premier League triumph.
In footage that has emerged on social media, several City players sang a parody of the ‘Allez Allez Allez’ song that Liverpool supporters created in the run-up to their appearance in the Champions League final last season.
In the revised version, City’s players apparently refer to Jurgen Klopp’s side as ‘victims’ and mention the line: ‘Kompany injured Salah’.
The video has sparked plenty of controversy, with the players being accused of lacking class.
Pep Guardiola’s team secured the title after beating Brighton 4-1 on the final day of the season, bringing a fierce battle with Liverpool to an end.

The Reds finished one point behind City after beating Wolves.
City lifted the trophy at the Amex Stadium but flew back to Manchester to continue the celebrations at the Etihad Stadium.
City players' 'Allez Allez Allez' chant
And it was on board the plane that the video was recorded, according to the Metro.
The Kompany line is a reference to the Belgian’s crunching tackle on Salah in City’s 2-1 win against Liverpool in January.
The centre-back was fortunate to escape with just a yellow card.
The Premier League trophy can be seen at the start of the video, while Ilkay Gundogan, Kyle Walker and Kompany are also spotted.
The lyrics that City’s players since are as follows, report the Metro:
All the way to Kiev,
To end up in defeat,
Crying in the stands,
And battered in the streets,
Kompany injured Salah,
Victims of it all,
Sterling won the double,
The Scousers won f*** all,
Allez, Allez, Allez
Allez, Allez, Allez
City may have questions to answer over the footage.
After City's triumph, Guardiola insisted retaining the title was the 'toughest title' he's won in his decorated managerial career.
"To win the title we had to win 14 games in a row," the Spaniard said, per BBC Sport.
"This was the toughest title in all my career, by far."News Now - Sport News
