Claire, 41, Reacted When One Of The Men Reportedly Called Her Son An

Claire, 41, reacted when one of the men reportedly called her son an “asshole”.

The 21-year-old England and Man City international tries to fight off hooligans while another man uses a fire extinguisher as a weapon.

An eyewitness described the scenes as “complete chaos” and testified that the fight was actually worse than it seemed. The footage has been widely circulated on social media.

He told The Sun: “It was a massacre. She got out of control. I have never seen anything like it in my life.

“I was in the next box and heard all the yelling and yelling, so we went out to see what was going on.

“It was crazy. Everyone said Phil Foden was there.

“I saw the blow. The violence was greater than what was caught on film.

“Another person got hit after the tape came to an end. He was bleeding.

“It all started. This went on for several more minutes.

“At some point, the security service was called, and as a result, many people were kicked out. It was unrealistic.

“It was like a scene from the Wild West.”

The clip, which was filmed in the hallway of Manchester’s AO Arena, begins with Foden looking flustered after City’s 3-2 defeat to Spurs earlier in the day.

Reacting to the thugs, the footballer’s girlfriend Rebecca Cooke turns around and yells, “Who are you calling ***?”

The pair then go to a private room in the arena following Khan’s bloody defeat by Kell Brook.

Then Foden’s mom, Claire, comes out and asks the group, “Right, who’s calling him?”

One of the men replies, “No one.”

Claire says, “Okay, back off then.”

She appears to be pushing away the man in the black jacket, forcing him to take a few steps back before the attacker enters and swings at her.

It is not clear if the punch hits, but the 41-year-old woman recoils and a man in a black baseball cap steps in and stabs her in defense.

Rebecca can be heard yelling, “Claire.”

A fight breaks out, about seven people are fighting in the corridor.

The man in the baseball cap grabs a fire extinguisher off the wall and rushes over to the blond.

Looks like he’s trying to hit him in the back of the head as he walks away.

The brawler in the hat then does two more lunges with the device before the clip cuts off abruptly.

English ace Foden, who wears a blue hoodie and jeans, is briefly seen trying to protect his mum.

He no longer plays a role in combat and does not strike.

Rebecca also stands aloof from the fighting.

Police investigation

Greater Manchester Police said: “GMP is aware of a video circulating on social media showing riots at the AO arena last night.

“We are conducting an additional investigation into the circumstances of the incident.”

The Manchester City bosses released a statement describing their “shock” and saying they would support Foden and his family.

“The club is aware of a video circulating on social media showing Phil Foden and his family being harassed and abused,” officials said.

“We are shocked and appalled at the nature of the abuse and subsequent attack on one of Phil’s family members.

“We will continue to provide Phil and his family with all the support and assistance they need.”

The Sun has reached out to Foden and his representatives for comment.
