Oh, football. Manchester City players are currently receiving a spanking on Twitter after wearing shirts in tribute to Gundogan, who picked up an injury against Watford in the midweek fixtures.

The German midfielder is expected to miss the rest of the season with a cruciate injury. Presumably paying their respects, his fellow teammates wore “Gundogan 8” shirts in the tunnel ahead of their crunch match at home to Arsenal.

The back-to-front shirts quickly picked up a reaction on Twitter, with many rival fans questioning whether the player had actually died.
