Manchester City’s Champions League title celebrations are in full swing and are expected to last well into the evening as the players opened beers at 2am and Jack Grealish showed off his karaoke skills.
City stars are set for a long night of celebration in Istanbul after beating Inter Milan 1-0 at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium to claim the club’s first Champions League title and become England’s second team in history to get the hat-trick.
Pep Guardiola and his players had to fight their way past a tough Inter side who tested their resolve, but victory in 90 minutes gave the victorious players plenty of time to hit City turkish party.
Footage from inside the dressing room showed England international Grealish joining in a rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s 1987 hit song ‘Everywhere’ with new words added to represent City’s European success.

The 27-year-old winger was in full-time tears as he expressed his joy at winning European football’s highest honor and spared no time to enjoy a beer with his teammates after the game.
He was momentarily joined by Norway team-mate Erling Haaland during his social media video toasting City’s triumph before the forward pulled out of the shot to join the party.
Grealish is known to like to let loose in the off-season and was one of many City players who were quick to grab a well-deserved beer as the realization of their achievement began to sink in.
Meanwhile, Haaland managed to get his hands on the iconic trophy that was circulating in the locker room and stopped to take a photo that will be adored by fans around the world.
He also shared a photo of himself biting off his gold medal which was shared without a caption in an already viral post.
Details surrounding the after-party celebrations had been kept relatively low-key, with the players refusing to reveal what was planned after the game, although Guardiola admitted a party was planned with family and friends at the hotel of the team.
