Twitter Reacts as Monaco comeback shocks Pep Guardiola and Manchester City

Pep Guardiola's men couldn't do the job against a resilient Monaco side.

Ohh Manchester City, what have you done? So the only team from England in the last 8 of Europe’s biggest competition is Leicester City who are 15th in the Premier League table. Take a moment for that to sink in. As Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola put it, “We played an exceptional second half, but we forgot to be there in the first half.”

It was frankly a tale of two halfs, Monaco raced to a two goal lead in the first half thanks to Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho as Manchester City looked as though they’re missing the in-form Yaya Toure. Pep’s half time team talk seemed to have worked as the Manchester side showed a lot of fight in the second half and created a host of chances, but only one was converted by Leroy Sane.

Poor defending saw them lose the tie, as Tiemoue Bakayoko rose to head in a Thomas Lemar to cap of perhaps one of the greatest European nights for Monaco. Twitter obviously took a lot of pleasure in Manchester City’s loss, and here’s the best among the jibes.

Ohh what a night!

You deserve it.

Overrated?

Burn.

Some people like to ignore reality.

Well, Pep knows best, right?

Valid point.

 

Manchester United sent their sympathies. (Not really)

Not happy, this fan.

Ouch.

Harsh reality of life.

Best League in the world.
