The funniest tweets from the world of football this week, featuring the best recreation of goal celebrations you will ever see, Pep Guardiola’s hideous touchline attire, and when football shows its true class.
There’s also LeBron James destroying Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a Real Madrid legend making deliveries of a different kind, and Tomas Soucek celebrating with his old teammates.
I have had this video on repeat for three days straight.

Who let Pep leave the dressing room with that jacket still on him?

José Mourinho blaming the players. Who could have possibly foreseen this happening?
Jose Mourinho arrived at Tottenham in November 2019 marvelling at the quality of the squad. 15 months later, with ~£135m spent on transfers, and now he’s claiming matters are beyond his control as the players aren’t good enough. What a curious development.

Although maybe he has a point…

I’m so starved of football in the flesh that I’ll be bringing the flares to the local park for Sunday league matches the first opportunity I get.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic went in on LeBron James for his activism, and the obnoxious Swede got deservedly dunked on.

Something tells me the Labour leader doesn’t actually know what a box-to-box midfielder does.
Sir Keir Starmer on his football strategy – “I’m a midfield player in the middle of the pitch, I like to think I’m a box-to-box player which means across the whole pitch” #ridge

LeBron wasn’t the only one dunking on someone he’s never met.

I can think of a few words to describe this. ‘Iconic’ is not one of them.
