Manchester City: Fans loved Schalke 04’s humorous tweet

Manchester City: Fans loved Schalke 04’s humorous tweet - Manchester City

Plenty of Manchester City fans have responded to a tongue-in-cheek tweet from the official Twitter account of Bundesliga club Schalke 04.

The Gelsenkirchen-based outfit outlined a number of reasons as to why fans of Premier League clubs should lend them their support for the remainder of the Bundesliga season, which resumes this weekend, and reminded City fans of a previous meeting between the two sides (via @s04_en).

The teams met in last season’s Champions League round of 16 and the second leg at the Etihad Stadium was a memorable one from a Manchester City perspective. Taking a 3-2 lead back with them from Germany, Pep Guardiola’s side ran riot at home, sticking seven past their beleaguered visitors without reply to complete a 10-2 aggregate romp (as per BBC).

The Premier League champions also have a couple of ex-Schalke players in their ranks. Manchester City signed Leroy Sane from the Bundesliga club in 2016 while Ilkay Gundogan, a native of Gelsenkirchen, was a youth player at Schalke before he became a professional footballer.
