Man City star fires a dig at Man Utd

English Premier League

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte has fired a dig at cross-town rivals Manchester United, who are set to go another season without silverware.

The Citizens have been a dominant force in the last few years after winning four of the last five Premier League titles, with Liverpool's success in 2020 the only blemish.

United, meanwhile, have not won a trophy since Jose Mourinho was in charge in 2017 and Laporte feels their success could annoy some people.

“It's something you notice a lot. They don't think it's normal that we always win [something],” the defender told the Daily Mail.

“Because if I'm not mistaken, we have won 11 trophies in four years and that can annoy some people, like our neighbours who haven't won anything."

“They [Man Utd] have a lot of supporters and they have a lot of people behind them,” added Laporte. “We are in the same city. They've spent a lot of money too. That can upset some people.

“Everyone defends their own interests; I trust in City and I hope we win a lot of trophies this year.”
