Manchester City delete tweet praising Martin Demichelis’s performance

Manchester City deleted a tweet they posted praising Martin Demichelis’s performance just moments before he was sent-off.

In the 51st minute of the game, City’s official Twitter account wrote: “51. Demichelis has been a rock at the heart of the City defence. The Argentine is thwarting everything Barca throw at him so far!”

But just two minutes later Demichelis was shown a red card for denying Lionel Messi a clear goalscoring opportunity. He brought down the Barcelona star as he raced through on goal.

The tweet was hastily deleted.

Instead, City had to report: “53. Red card for Martin Demichelis who brings down Messi. The Argentine out-stretched a leg but couldn’t get there.”

See the red card incident.

    Thats rich coming from someone who is obviously a fan of a mid-table team like Manchester United. Only thing that is in perspective is how shit you are without Sir Alex Ferguson.
