Liverpool legend responds to Man City's classless chant
- One of Liverpool greats, John Aldridge, made a post on Twitter reacting to Manchester City singing a disgraceful remake of Liverpool's 'Allez, Allez, Allez' chant.
- He shows what football singing really should be about.
Former Red John Aldridge shared Liverpool's post showing John Power singing a rendition of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' at Boss Night's end of season party.
He also wrote a perfect response to Manchester City's disgraceful chant.
"We’ve been hearing a lot about football songs this evening and Man City players singing detrimentally about our Massive club!!
"This is what football singing is all about! Pure CLASS, BOOM."

The story behind all this is that Manchester City are heavily criticized after someone published a video showing the club's travelling party singing an alternative version of the 'Allez, Allez, Allez' chant.
The video is taken after Man City were named the Premier League champions, beating Liverpool just by one point.
It's hard to say what staff members and players are joining in to sing a disgraceful chant but what's easier to catch are the words of the said chant.
In this chant, Liverpool fans are 'battered in the streets' and 'crying in the stands'. There are also mentions of City captain Vincent Kompany injuring Mohamed Salah earlier in the season.
Liverpool supporters are obviously not fans of this chant. Some of them see a reference to Sean Cox or Hillsborough tragedy in its words.
“Battered in the streets”....but it’s not about Sean Cox, the most high profile story last year of a Liverpool fan being attacked in the street.— Mike D'Arcy (@iammikedarcy) May 14, 2019
“Victims of it all”...but it’s not about the biggest occasion where LFC fans were victim blamed.
City players singing about Sean Cox nearly dying. Classy.— Jay🇪🇸🔴 (@FutebolJay) May 14, 2019
Again, havent got their own chants so let's take Liverpool's one and use it lol the state of this club, make it passed the last 8 in CL then maybe you can tap a beat— Red Ottoman (@SpionKop88) May 14, 2019
Embarrassing this from city players— sparkyLFC (@sparkysegal) May 14, 2019
They're an utter disgrace. 😠— AnfieldCatLFC🔴💚🦊Ⓥ🏴 (@JULIE3692YNWA) May 14, 2019
Manchester City, in their turn, deny either of these tragedies are mentioned. The club defend their staff and players claiming that this is a 'regular chant during the 2018-19 season'. Man City also claim in their statement that 'any suggestion that the lyrics relate to Sean Cox or the Hillsborough tragedy is entirely without foundation'.
According to the City's statement, this chant refers to the 2018 UEFA Champions League final in Kiev. Originally, instead of Kompany there was Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.
