Manchester City delete Tweet hailing Martin Demichelis minutes before his sending off

1932330 666957886695211 2098654433 n Manchester City delete Tweet hailing Martin Demichelis minutes before his sending offWhat unbelievable timing!

The official Manchester City Twitter account posted a Tweet on their official account to over 1.5 million followers, hailing the performance of Martin Demichelis.

In fairness to the error prone defender, up until that point he was playing well.

Three minutes later disaster struck. Manuel Pellegrini’s favourite defender brought down Lionel Messi and was sent off.

Cue furious deleting from the normally excellent social media team of Manchester City!
