Greater Manchester Police are looking into claims that Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany was racially abused as he gave a television interview following the Premier League champions’ victory over Manchester United on Monday evening, ESPN
Kompany was with James Milner as he spoke with a television broadcaster. The force said in a statement: “Greater Manchester Police has not received a complaint about racist abuse directed towards any players following [Monday evening’s] fixture.
“However, we have 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.”
Kompany was on the winning side in the Old Trafford fixture, despite scoring an own goal that cancelled out Milner’s opener. Sergio Aguero later put City in front for the second time in the contest and City held on to reduce the gap between the two clubs at the top of the table to 12 points with seven games to play.
The Belgium international has been at the Etihad Stadium since August 2008, signed from Hamburg by former City manager Mark Hughes. Kompany has gone on to make more than 200 appearances for the club.
