Tweets of the Week: Kolasinac the beast, Özil’s burn, and the perfect transfer

The best and funniest football-related tweets of the week, featuring Sead Kolasinac doing Sead Kolasinac things, Mesut Özil dunking on a Spurs fan, and the most perfect football transfer of all time. 

Well done if you’ve made it to this column and Sunday, as it means you have managed not to melt into a puddle following the crazy temperatures that were inflicted on the UK and Ireland this past week.

It reached Steve Staunton in a snapback cap levels of heatwave. 

The heat makes people do crazy things, like trying to take on Sead Kolasinac in a fight.

You wouldn’t steal a car.

Someone should call the police on Mesut though, after he absolutely bodied this Spurs fan. 

Hook it to my veins, IMMEDIATELY.

That FaceApp thing is amazing. 

The greatest double signing in history. 


From one inconsistent winger to another. 

Pre-season club Twitter banter is in full swing. 

Chelsea didn’t take that insult lying down, though.

When it’s pre-season and you can just ball to your heart’s content. 

The hours wasted doing this.

Those hips don’t lie. 

And to end your week on a positive note.
