“Stop Exploiting” – Manchester City Fans Unleash Fury Towards Ownership Before Arsenal Game

Manchester City has emerged as one of the biggest clubs in the world, thanks to their success in the past five years.

Fans have firmly stood behind their team during this time, with the team’s home stadium becoming a literal fortress.

The success has also seen the club turn in record profits. Manchester City has earned a record $750 million in revenue across all their income streams.
