Merseyside Police are investigating the alleged criminal damage to a Man City bus

Merseyside Police have confirmed they have received a complaint alleging criminal damage to the Manchester City team bus following Sunday’s 1-0 Premier League defeat by Liverpool at Anfield.

One image showed damage to the bus’ windshield caused by an object thrown off the road, City said.

On Wednesday morning, a statement from Merseyside Police asked for more information.

“We have now received a report of alleged criminal damage by the Manchester City team manager following the match between Liverpool and Manchester City on Sunday 16 October,” the statement read.

“The incident of alleged windshield damage was reported to us on Tuesday 18th October and further investigations are ongoing.

“Anyone with information, video, CCTV or dashcam footage is asked to contact the Merseyside Police Social Media Desk via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ quoting reference 22000766792.”

Liverpool were fined in 2018 after fans attacked the City bus as it arrived at Anfield for a Champions League game.

City manager Pep Guardiola also said coins were thrown at him during Sunday’s game despite not being hit.

Visiting fans have also been accused of singing offensive songs and writing graffiti about the Hillsborough and Heysel disasters.

After the game, City privately expressed the view that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had contributed to a fiery atmosphere at Anfield via his allegedly limitless spending power – and that of fellow Gulf state clubs Newcastle and Paris St Germain.

Klopp took offense at a press conference on Tuesday, suggesting he had been deliberately misunderstood.

“This is the life of people who speak publicly. It’s not the first time I’ve been misunderstood,” he said.

“So I know what I was thinking when I said it. If someone misunderstands that – or wants to misunderstand it – it’s not my fault.”

Klopp was charged with improper conduct on Tuesday following his dismissal by referee Anthony Taylor on Sunday.

The German was shown a red card for his angry reaction to Taylor and one of his assistants after Mohamed Salah was not awarded a foul after a tackle by Bernardo Silva.

He could face a touchline ban if found guilty, but after having until Friday to respond he can still remain in the technical area for West Ham’s visit on Wednesday.
