Schadenfreude is a powerful emotion

Football fans are a bitter old lot. When they’re not cheering on their own team’s success, they are more than happy to go out and celebrate the failure of their rivals.

Even if it has nothing to do with their rivals though, supporters can always find a way of squeezing some schadenfreude out of pretty much any situation.

Wolverhampton Wanderers fans tapped into this spirit on Sunday during Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over their side on the final day of the Premier League season at Anfield.

As news emerged on Sunday that Manchester City had overturned their early 1-0 deficit away to Brighton and Hove Albion and scored a further four, Anfield fell a little quieter.

The Wolves fans only increased in volume however, and starting singing “Raheem Sterling, he’s top of the league” in reference to Manchester City forward and former Liverpool star Raheem Sterling, who has been instrumental in the success of Pep Guardiola’s side this season.

It was the best chant of the day by a country mile (and the second best chant of the weekend), and Wolves fans should be genuinely proud of themselves.
