Manchester City stars fly home on private jet after Carabao Cup final win… but there are few fans to greet them

MANCHESTER CITY players arrive back home after crushing Arsenal to win the Carabao Cup… but with barely a fan there to congratulate them.

Blue barriers were set up at Manchester Airport in anticipation of supporters swarming to meet their heroes.

But for Pep Guardiola, Kevin De Bruyne and Co – who all wore matching black roll neck shirts with blue overcoats and grey trousers – their triumphant return was a quiet affair.

Fan favourite and captain Vincent Kompany scored the second in yesterday’s 3-0 thrashing of Arsene Wenger’s sorry side.

The Belgian, who has missed an astonishing 130 games for the club through injury, proudly wore his winners medal through arrivals alongside Leroy Sane.

Yet it was Yaya Toure – who did not feature in the Wembley showpiece – who was seen shaking hands with a lone supporter.

But their faces appeared a bit more stony upon the return north, with De Bruyne and Fernandinho wheeling their bags through in apparent silence.

Trust Benjamin Mendy to light up the scene, though.

The injured left-back wore a beaming smile – and eye-catching necklace – as he walked next to Bernardo Silva.

Sergio Aguero and David Silva got the other goals, with Guardiola hailing the dawning of a new golden era for City.

The Spaniard, who claimed his first piece of silverware with the club, said: “To win titles helps win more. It’s important to win the first one.

“It is going to help us in the Premier League, where we will try to win the rest of our games, and the Champions League.

“We’re so happy and a big congratulations to all of Manchester City and our fans.

“This trophy is for Manchester City and not for me.”
