Man City's Kalvin Phillips sings X-rated song live on TV as wild treble celebrations continue
| Last updated
Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips turned the airwaves blue by singing an X-rated chant about his teammate, John Stones, during Manchester City’s treble-winners parade.
After the open-topped bus parade was delayed because of electrical storms and torrential rain, which actually meant that the team had to travel on the tram to get to their own party, the lads were clearly pretty well lubricated upon arrival.
That boiled over when – live on TV – former Leeds United man Phillips took the microphone and started to serenade his teammate Stones.
“Johnny, Johnny Stones…” the chant started.
To the tune of Boney M’s disco classic ‘Daddy Cool’, it continues: “He gets the Blues excited, he f***ing hates [Manchester] United.”
Well, when you get that many football fans together, it’s rare that you won’t get the occasional dig at a rival.
Manchester United fans are well used to success and open-topped bus parades, so they really can’t have too many problems with it.
The TV companies – such as Sky Sports News – who were broadcasting the event live might have felt differently, though.
As it happened, Sky Sports News quickly left the celebrations and apologised to viewers for the foul language.
Not that Phillips, his teammates, or the Manchester City faithful will care, though.
One City fan tweeted: “Kalvin Phillips, unsellable.”
Another said: “I honestly love Kalvin Phillips so much.”
A third commented: “Kalvin Phillips just hit legend status for swearing live on Sky Sports News.”
Told you most people wouldn’t be bothered, didn’t we?
Anyway, the drunkenness and partying is set to continue into the night in Manchester, after thousands of fans braved the downpour to see their returning heroes.
City managed to claw back from a deficit in the Premier League, overhauling Arsenal to win with ease over the 38 games.
In the FA Cup, they took on their bitter city rivals United at Wembley, winning 2-1.
Then, they marched on to Istanbul where they met Inter Milan in Saturday’s UEFA Champions League showpiece match, winning thanks to Rodri’s second half goal.
That makes them just the second English team – after United in 1999 – to win a domestic treble, joining an elite band of clubs to pick up their association cup, domestic league trophy, and the European Cup in the same season.
Regardless of the ongoing concerns about where the bottomless pit of money that fuels the City behemoth comes from, or the 115 financial charges levelled against them, their football on the pitch has been scintillating.
It’s going to be a long night for the thousands of fans, as well as a few of the players as well, by the looks of things.
