Ilkay Gundogan has tweeted to confirm that he is not dead – after Manchester City caused a social media storm by wearing tribute shirts to their injured team-mate.
Social media’s reaction to Manchester City players wearing backward shirts in support of crocked Gundogan was less sympathetic than thought.
Twitter is a hub for trolling and mocking various footballers, teams and managers after their incidents on the pitch.
The Citizens came out with surprising back to front Gundogan named t-shirts before kickoff against Arsenal last night.
The idea was to show support to teammate Ilkay Gundogan who will miss the rest of the season due to a serious knee injury.
A nice, harmless tribute to a stricken friend, some might say.
But the following tweets showcase that the tribute was overdone by the Manchester City stars.
