Mbappe subtly mocks City after Lyon’s heroic UCL win.

Published

Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe wasted no time in hitting out at long term critics of the French Ligue 1 in the wake of Lyon’s sensational victory over Manchester City.

Goals from Moussa Dembele and Maxwell Cornet were enough to ensure Pep Guardiola once again failed to take City to the semi-finals of the competition. It was a massive effort from Lyon, who were overwhelming underdogs going into the quarter final tie. But a combination of sheer determination and a slice of luck ensured Lyon completed the set of of an interesting semi-final which will entail all French and German sides. Taking to Twitter, Mbappe congratulated PSG’s local champions while simultaneously mocking critics by using the famous “Farmers’ League” slander. The term ‘Farmer’s League’ has for a long time been used to refer to the French Ligue 1, which has been accused of being below par in its football among Europe’s top five leagues. Mbappe and his team mate Neymar have particularly been the comic of jokes from vicious fans who feel the pair deserve to play in a ‘better’ league. Lyon also took to their own social media to poke fun at the Farmers jibe by writing “No farmers here”.

The French club will now focus their attention on the semi-final clash against Bayern Munich, who completely obliterated Barcelona 8-2 in the other quarter final tie.

Anthony Joshua will be putting his heavyweight titles on the line against Kubrat Pulev in a duel that will come up on December 12.

According to the report on Daily Mail, PDC chairman Barry Hearn explained that he is waiting for more information from the UK government. ‘We are geared up for fans to come back. If they give me 1,000 I will be over the moon but we waiting on more information from the government and health authorities. ‘We have got the AJ fight coming up as well without a ticketing agency, but believe you me we are standing by and waiting to press a big red button on my desk.” Anthony Joshua’s last professional fight was against Andy Ruiz and the 31-year-old did well to beat the Mexican and collected his titles back
