Two minors from Manchester City have been banned due to their use of “vile” chants about Sir Bobby Charlton.

Two fans of Manchester City have been prohibited from attending matches due to their offensive chants regarding the passing of Sir Bobby Charlton, a former player for Manchester United, on Saturday.

After complaints were made, the club conducted an investigation and issued an apology for the individuals who were recorded singing about Charlton during half-time in City’s game against Brighton on Saturday. This was in response to the news of the passing of a former English national player. The club used CCTV footage to identify the individuals involved.

Manchester City has confirmed on Thursday that two underage individuals have been identified in relation to the offensive chanting that was heard at the Etihad Stadium during halftime of their home game against Brighton last weekend.

The people involved have been banned from attending any future games, whether at home or away. Their information has also been given to the Greater Manchester Police for further investigation.

After the Greater Manchester Police investigation is completed, the individuals will face consequences and be subject to the club’s official sanctions and bans process.

The duration of the bans will be determined by the City club after the police, who are currently investigating potential criminal charges, have completed their investigation. In light of our recent tribute to club legend Francis Lee, Manchester City fans should recognize and value the importance of respect in our sport, as stated in a statement released by the club on Sunday.

On Sunday, City will play against Manchester United at Old Trafford. During the match, there will be a moment of applause to pay tribute to Charlton’s life.
