Rio Ferdinand has hit out at Manchester City fans following their Champions League victory over PSG.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men booked their spot in the semi-final of the competition as Kevin De Bruyne struck the only goal of the game at the Etihad.
It secured a 3-2 aggregate win with City fans in full voice as the final whistle was blown.
But it was not the case throughout the clash and Ferdinand believes the Etihad faithful must do more for their side.
“It is the duty of the fans to inspire the team sometimes,” he said on BT Sport.
“The players have to go out there and play but sometimes they need to be pushed over the line.
“The fans here, they didn’t start singing until the 76th minute.”
Fellow pundit David Ginola also had his say with City fans arguably at their loudest before the game – as they again jeered the Champions League anthem.
They need to have more support from the fans because we heard the first song at the 76th minute,’ Ginola said after the game.
‘Manuel Pellegrini, at the press conference yesterday, said to the fans “you need to be there right from the beginning, from the first seconds of the game”.
“This is what they need because tonight it was very quiet.”
