The best and funniest tweets from the world of football this week, featuring Man City’s two-year ban from the Champions League, which Jose Mourinho took no delight from, of course, Mo Salah takes up a new sport, and a football term makes it into the dictionary.
It hasn’t been a good season for Man City, but it can only go up from here though, right?

We’re all playing checkers, while Arsene Wenger is playing 4D chess.
Wenger started working for FIFA and in few months now Manchester City are banned from the Champions League so we can finish 5th and qualify directly for it. Arsène Wenger, he’s done it again

This is painfully the most Mourinho thing Jose could have done at this moment.
"You speaking about the goals he scored or the goals he missed?!"

The Special One seems to be in a jovial mood. I wonder why…
José Mourinho in response to Man City reportedly being deducted points: "I have to ask if the team that finished [second] in 2018 is going to be champions, yes or no? That would be interesting but joking apart." #mulive [@RichJolly]

We need more action on racism such as this. Well done to all involved.
In Germany, a fan hurled racist slurs towards Leroy Kwadwo, a Ghanian football player.
When other fans saw it, they alerted security, who escorted the man out.
Then, as opposing players came to hug Kwadwo, the entire stadium stood up and chanted "Nazis Out!" pic.twitter.com/FHQP9Pe18J
