Man City fans launch wild celebrations as they mount bus stops and smash cars after Champions League win

Man City fans launch wild celebrations as they mount bus stops and smash cars after Champions League win

Manchester City beat Inter Milan to claim a first ever Champions League win last night, sending fans in their home city absolutely wild

Manchester City fans poured onto the streets of the city last night, with police forced to intervene after fans climbed on a police vehicle, smashing it up.

Given the sheer number of people on the streets, the celebrations of City’s first ever Champions League trophy – completing an historic treble with victory over Inter Milan – went off pretty peacefully.

However, police officers were seen wrestling someone to the ground, and some people climbed on bus shelters, but broadly, the atmosphere was one of happiness and excitement.

City fans have waited years for their club to finally enter into the European pantheon reserved for only the best teams on the continent, but they certainly wanted to celebrate it now that they’re in the club.

It’s hardly a heart-warming rags-to-riches tale, given the vast resources of their owners and steamrollering nature of the club, but City’s fans have seen dark times, too.

Relegation to the UK’s third tier in 1998 must feel like a world away now, as they sit atop the European footballing tree.

They also won the Premier League and FA Cup, matching a feat that only their city neighbours Manchester United have ever achieved as an English club before.

It has now also confirmed that there will be a victory bus parade around Manchester city centre on Monday evening, with the club tweeting: "We will be celebrating our Treble with an open-top bus parade through Manchester city centre on Monday.

“Can't wait to see you all there!

"Further details will follow tomorrow."

Manchester City Council also wrote: "Congratulations to @ManCity on completing the treble!

"To celebrate this historic season, a parade will take place on Monday evening - details about the parade will be shared on Sunday."

One fan got arrested, though it was a largely peaceful celebration.

The council leader Bev Craig, said: "Winning the treble, crowned with an historic first Champions League triumph, is an incredible achievement.

"We extend our congratulations on behalf of the city to the club and its fans.

"We're sure the parade will be a joyous and unforgettable occasion as fans gather in the city centre to celebrate with the team a success which will resonate around the world and showcases once again Manchester's huge sporting legacy."

The match was settled 22 minutes from time when Rodri – a standout performer all season – took advantage of the break of the ball to guide the ball past André Onana in the Inter goal.

In doing so, he claimed a first ever European Cup for his side, a first for manager Pep Guardiola since 2011, and sealed an historic season for the blue side of Manchester.

It's hard to imagine who in world football will be able to stop them next year, too.
