Paul Scholes: Manchester City Fans Don’t Do European Nights Like United And Liverpool

Paul Scholes has slammed Manchester City fans for not supporting their team on European nights like they do at Manchester United or Liverpool.

Speaking on ITV ahead of City’s clash with Roma tonight, the former United man made his feelings known on the stadium turnout.

Having enjoyed many great nights at Old Trafford throughout his illustrious career, Scholes called on City fans to do their bit in the quest for European success at the Etihad.

He said:

I was lucky enough to play at Old Trafford and we always talked about the atmosphere on a Tuesday night, the special atmosphere you create, and the crowd is rocking when you go out for a warm up.

“At quarter past seven and there’s empty seats everywhere.

“When you come here it just doesn’t have a European night feel to it. You go to Liverpool, you go to Old Trafford, you go to Chelsea, they have a special feeling for it.

“Tonight I don’t think there is [a special atmosphere]. I don’t think they realise what a big game this is.

“They’ve got the team, they’ve definitely got the players, the quality is definitely there, but do the crowd realise how lucky they are to be in this competition? I don’t think they do.”

Do you agree with Scholes – do City fans realise how big games like these are?
