Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has launched an investigation into anti-Semitic chanting after a video appeared online.
Superintendent Steve Howard from the City of Manchester Division was the Police Commander for Saturday’s fixture. He said: “Following recent media coverage, Greater Manchester Police have been made aware of a video showing people chanting anti-Semitic songs.
GMP believes that those involved were heading for a Premier League football match. The match in question was between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday 21 January 2017.
“This has yet to be formally reported to police however we have now launched an investigation and we are treating this as a hate crime”, Spt Howard said.
“We would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or has video footage to contact police as soon as possible.
“There is no place in society for such abhorrent behaviour and we will not tolerate hate crime of any sort in Greater Manchester”.
