Man City will wear the 2023 FIFA World Champions badge on their shirts in all their remaining Premier League matches this season and Liverpool supporters are not best pleased about it.

City added the Club World Cup to last season’s treble with an emphatic 4-0 win over Brazilian side Fluminense in Jeddah on Friday.

Julian Alvarez struck twice, setting them on their way after just 40 seconds and wrapping up victory late on, while Phil Foden forced an own goal and grabbed the other himself.

Teams who win the competition are allowed to wear a special gold badge on their shirts until the next winner is crowned this time next year.

It has been confirmed that City will be doing so with immediate effect and this has not gone down well with Liverpool fans.

City will now wear the FIFA World Champions badge on their shirts for the rest of the season

The Reds won the Club World Cup back in 2019, beating Flamengo in the final.

However, they had to wait until the following season to wear the badge in the top flight as Premier League rules at the time stated that kit changes could not be made during the campaign.

This ruling was soon changed and Chelsea were allowed to when they triumphed in 2021.

Liverpool fans were angered then and they are once again with one tweeting ‘Premier League always favouring Man City’.

Another tweeted: ‘City and Chelsea are allowed to wear it, Liverpool weren’t. Just saying…’

One wrote; ‘I remember when we were not allowed to wear the World Champions badge joking that if it were City they’d definitely allow it.’

It was manager Pep Guardiola’s fourth triumph in the competition but one that came at a cost as influential midfielder Rodri was forced off in the second half with an injury.

City, who were again without striker Erling Haaland due to a foot problem, now face an anxious wait over the Spaniard’s fitness ahead of the resumption of their Premier League title defence at Everton next Wednesday.

Rodri, who limped off after a challenge from Alexsander, has already missed four games through suspension this season and City have lost them all.

Yet for now City can celebrate their fifth trophy of 2023, having also claimed the European Super Cup in August.

They were far too strong for the ageing Copa Libertadores winners, who repeatedly invited pressure on to themselves.
