Since becoming a low-level meme after his histrionics at the Liberty Stadium went viral at the weekend, ‘Crying Man City Fan’ (goverment name: John Millington) has been moved to explain his tears in a bid to preserve his image.
John told the Manchester Evening News:
“I wasn’t crying, I was just frustrated and very tired.
“I put my head down and when I looked up there was a camera in my face and I knew what it would have looked like. I just thought ‘oh no’.
“I can’t really remember it, I’d finished work the night before at eight, not gone to bed until midnight and had to be up at 4am. I think it was a combination of the beer and being tired and it all just went ‘bang!’.
“There was a tear in my eye but I wasn’t crying. And it’s still in our hands.”
So, once again, here’s John; head in hands, tired, frustrated, going ‘bang!’ but NOT, repeat NOT crying after Luke Moore nodded home Swansea’s winner…
“I wasn’t crying, my tear ducts were just sweating heavily!”
