Tweets of the Week: Man United’s weird week, unlikely hero Demba Ba, and Lukaku gets in the way

The best and funniest tweets from the world of football this week, featuring Manchester United’s exit from the Champions League, the Manchester Derby, Demba Ba giving the fourth official a piece of his mind, and Romelu Lukaku unintentionally blocking Inter’s path to the knockout stages. 

The week got off to a terrible start for Man united when they got dumped out of the Champions League by RB Leipzig. 

Although Paul Pogba put in a miraculously good performance right after his agent dropped a bombshell the weekend before. 

Ole said what now?

But the Manchester Derby was a goalless borefest in the end.

Istanbul Basaksehir and PSG took a stand against racism on Tuesday when the two teams walked off the pitch following alleged racism by the fourth official. 

Demba Ba became the unlikely hero of the week as a result.

An excellent point on the ‘keep politics out of sport’ debate.

Poor Romelu Lukaku was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

After smashing the Pride corner flag, this was great to see from Jamie Vardy. 

Marcelo Bielsa had no problem sharing his lineup well ahead of Friday’s game, although it didn’t stop them from losing to West Ham. 

Brother from another mother?

Sorry, Neymar

Everyone in Wales and Ireland breathes a huge sigh of relief. 

Support local.

Farewell to Italy legend Paolo Rossi, who passed away aged 64 this week.
