'Plastic club', 'Pretty pathetic' - Liverpool fans troll Man City after shock revelation
Manchester City are yet to sell their ticket allocation for the return visit of Liverpool to the Etihad for the second-leg of the sides Champions League semi-final, much to the amusement of the Reds faithful on social media.
In contrast to the speed by which tickets for the first-leg were snapped up by Liverpool fans, tickets for the return leg in Manchester went on sale on Monday and were still available on Wednesday according to a report in the Daily Mail, who suggested City might not fill their allocation
Despite closing in on another Premier Lea.gue title, and being considered one of the best teams ever to grace the top-flight, Pep Guardiola’s men are still seemingly not that an attractive an option for a Wednesday night out.
At Maine Road, the Manchester outfit were renowned for filling out their stadium – even after multiple relegations.
However, since the move to the much bigger Etihad, there are often masses of empty seats which has resulted in opposition fans dubbing it as the ‘Emptihad.’
The news has had supporters of the Reds ribbing their counterparts with disbelief that they are unable to attract fans for one of the biggest games in the history of the Sky Blues.
