After Manchester City secured a crucial 2-1 victory in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie away to Paris-Saint Germain on Wednesday night, star midfielder Ilkay Gundogan sent a message to supporters alleviating injury fears.
A stunning second half performance from the Sky Blues gifted City a major advantage for the second leg in Manchester next week.
Marquinhos originally gave PSG a first half lead as the Ligue 1 giants caused Pep Guardiola’s side all sorts of problems.
However, over the next 45 minutes, City stamped their authority and dominated the play – with Kevin De Bruyne’s looping delivery finding it’s way past Keylor Navas for a deserved equaliser.
Riyad Mahrez then fired a free-kick through a leaky PSG wall to gift City a huge lead in Paris and two away goals.
After the full time whistle, some supporters were concerned for midfielder Gundogan after a poor tackle from opposition midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye.
The ex-Everton ace was sent off for a late challenge on Gundogan in what was a careless clattering into the back of his achilles.
Writing on Twitter, the German alleviated concerns of a serious injury by confirming he is in fact fine and ‘all good’ after the incident.
Reacting to this message, many Man City fans were rightfully overjoyed – find all of their verdicts down below.
