The funniest and best football-related tweets this week, featuring Megan Rapinoe’s foul-mouthed takedown of Donald Trump, Rafael Benitez is already set up for life after Newcastle, and Luis Suarez is still a complete and utter shithouse.
The most talked about tweet all week…

Rafael Benitez left Newcastle United to hawk meal replacement shakes on social media a la the Kardashians.

The search for his successor is going well.
According to Sky Bet the joint favourites for the Newcastle job are Jose Mourinho and Mark Hughes. The gulf in class between those two is astonishing. Like if the joint favourites for the next James Bond were Michael Fassbender and Chesney from Coronation Street.

Over three decades ago this week since Marco van Basten did a madness.
31 years ago today Marco Van Basten did this in the European Championships Final.
The look of shock on Dutch boss Rinus Michels’ face sums it up.
What a goal. What a player.pic.twitter.com/HBRRVoXwQb
