Fans are mocking Manchester City’s £100million man Jack Grealish after he tried to sneakily delete an old Real Madrid tweet following their Champions League exit.
City’s long wait of winning Champions League continues after a late comeback from Real at the Bernabeu in the semi-finals on Wednesday evening.
The former Aston Villa midfielder came on as a substitute in 78th minute with City leading 1-0 on the night and 5-3 on aggregate and twice went agonisingly close to putting the tie beyond the Spanish giants.

The England international had a shot cleared off the line by Ferland Mendy – and another effort diverted just past the post by the foot of Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Instead, Rodrygo then scored twice in injury-time as Real Madrid staged a remarkable comeback to win 3-1 on the night and 6-5 on aggregate at the Bernabeu.
Despite the heartbreak of crashing out of Europe and missing those chances, worse was to come for the 26-year-old on social media.
The game had barely ended when rival supporters picked up on an eight-year-old tweet from Grealish.

The post, reacting to another semi-final involving the Spanish giants, simply read: ‘Hala Madrid!!!’
Fans were commenting on his old post before Grealish decided to delete his tweet to avoid anymore criticism.
However, rival supporters have screenshotted his post and will not let him live it down anytime soon.

One fan even admitting to finding it amusing how Grealish felt deleting the tweet would end it
One fan said: ‘Jack Grealish seeing everyone on Twitter Retweeting his tweet from 2014 saying ‘HALA MADRID’.
Another added: ‘Jack Grealish has deleted his Hala Madrid tweet but Stillllllllllllll, we have receipts.
A third said: ‘Ok but Jack Grealish cancelling his Hala Madrid tweet and forgetting that nothing ever dies on the Internet is so funny to me.’
Grealish has had a tough start to life at City and failed to live up to the heights that were expected of him.
He has made 35 appearances, but only managed five goals, with just 20 starts in the Premier League where he has managed just two goals and two assists.
