Criticism of Barcelona grows after Ilkay Gundogan tweet

Barcelona faced mockery on social media for attempting to take credit for Ilkay Gundogan’s happiness in a recent post. The club’s tweet claimed that it was the best year of Gundogan’s life, referencing his move to Barcelona, but many were quick to point out that the bulk of his successful year was actually with Manchester City.

The Misinterpreted Tweet

After Gundogan expressed that it had been the best year of his life in an Instagram post, Barcelona attempted to seize the opportunity by implying that his happiness was solely linked to his move to the club. However, many users pointed out that the player’s most successful moments of the year were with Manchester City, where he won the treble and became the captain of the team.

Backlash on Social Media

The tweet from Barcelona sparked backlash and was deemed shameless by many users who saw it as an attempt to take credit for Gundogan’s happiness. The club’s attempt to attribute his joy to his transfer to Barcelona was met with criticism, particularly considering the challenges the player has faced at his new club.

Mixed Signals

While Barcelona’s tweet was seen as disingenuous by many, Gundogan himself had included signing for the club in the original post on Instagram. Some users highlighted this inclusion, suggesting that the player’s happiness was indeed linked to fulfilling his childhood dream of joining the club.

The Power of Social Media

The incident highlighted the divisive nature of social media and how quickly interactions can attract derision and mockery online. Despite the mixed signals and differing interpretations, it is clear that the tweet from Barcelona did not resonate well with many users.
