City were left furious after a member of Pep Guardiola’s backroom staff claimed to have been spat at during the second half and lodged a complaint immediately after the game.
Officials from the reigning Premier League champions said they had video footage of the incident, which they later handed over to the authorities.
In a statement released on Tuesday, Liverpool announced they had closed a ‘full and thorough investigation’ into the incident.
According to The Athletic, there was no evidence to prove anybody had spat at the Manchester City coaching staff.
However, two supporters showed ‘aggressive behaviour’ that led Liverpool to take the ‘appropriate action’.
Whether the individual who reported the incident was misunderstood or however they came to the apparent wrong conclusion, it is upsetting that something can become this public with no evidence.
In reaction to the news shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
Shocking revelation 😂🤦♂️

Of course! A few years ago, they didn’t see anyone attack city’s team despite hundreds of videos of the incident everywhere. How could they see this
