Vincent Kompany targeted by alleged racist abuse after Manchester derby
Manchester City captain was giving interview to Sky Sports
Greater Manchester Police will examine CCTV and television footage of Vincent Kompany's post-match interview following Manchester City's 2-1 win over Manchester United on Monday evening at Old Trafford, to investigate claims the City captain was racially abused.
The force has been made aware of footage by the Manchester Evening News, which suggested there had been abuse. But Greater Manchester Police said they had not received a complaint about abuse directed towards players.
City, after listening to a clean feed of the interview, do not believe there is evidence of abuse either, in an area to which spectators have no access.
