Red Devils’ Tactical Tweet: Timely Response to Man City’s Champions League Exit

Manchester United’s social media administrator could not hide his joy when rivals Manchester City were knocked out of the Champions League quarter-finals by Real Madrid, posting a cheeky tweet in the aftermath.

Manchester City were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid.

Manchester United sent out a “perfectly-timed” tweet shortly after Manchester City’s Champions League exit.

On Wednesday night at the Etihad Stadium, Real Madrid defeated the reigning champions on penalties.

Los Blancos, who have won the competition a record 14 times, took an early lead thanks to Rodrygo, shocking Pep Guardiola’s side, who were favourites to win the tie.

Kevin De Bruyne’s late equaliser forced extra time and penalties, as City dominated Carlo Ancelotti’s Galacticos but failed to win.

And it cost them dearly, as the visitors held their nerve to win 4-3 in the shootout and advance to the competition’s semi-finals, after Bernardo Silva missed his penalty in embarrassing fashion, chipping it straight into the hands of Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin.

The English and European champions were bitterly disappointed, and rivals United took advantage of the opportunity to aggravate the situation.

Just a few minutes after Antonio Rudiger scored his penalty to knock City out, the Red Devils’ official X account posted the following tweet:

“Wembley is calling.”

It referred to United’s FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City on Sunday. However, the timing led fans to believe it was a cheeky dig at City, whose exit meant they would not advance to the Champions League final at Wembley.

Man Utd’s social media admin made the most of the good news

One United fan replied: “GOOD TIMING ADMIN,” while another tweeted: “Spectacular timing this.”

A third added: “WHAT TIMING OMFG,” while a fourth mocked: “Manchester City can hold that L tbf.”

Others chimed in with: “Immediately after exit. Perfect timing,” and: “Admin cooking after double hate watch.”

Despite the savage display of housery, City will still play their FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
