Video: Manchester City loanee Karim Rekik suffers epic fail during PSV title celebrations

PSV Eindhoven

Karim Rekik is on a season-long loan deal at PSV Eindhoven and attempted to celebrate with the fans by getting them to chant his name - it went badly.

With just one Premier League appearance to his name since first joining Manchester City as a youngster in 2011, Karim Rekik’s name is not one you are likely to hear being chanted from the Etihad stands any time soon.

But, after spending two seasons on loan with PSV Eindhoven back in his native Holland, the 20-year-old may have been hoping for a little more from his adopted club.

That certainly appears to be the case if a newly-uploaded YouTube video is anything to go by.

The clip features Rekik, front and centre for PSV’s title celebrations, after the Eindhoven giants secured the league title over the weekend just passed.

In the footage, the Manchester City man is seen MC’ing to a large crowd of supporters who have turned out to celebrate the club’s Eredivisie success.

But rather than bask in any collective glory, Rekik instead decided to instigate a rather personal chant – his name.

The 20-year-old can be heard rhythmically repeating the words “Karim Rekik” over and over in a bid to gain some adulation from the waiting fans.

Their response, however, is lukewarm to say the least.

Despite this, the Manchester City man has enjoyed a solid season in Holland, playing 18 games and scoring once for the Dutch side.

Whether that is enough to earn him a permanent deal at the Philips Stadion remains to be seen, but on the basis of this clip, the fans are unlikely to shed many tears if he leaves.
