Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka probably shouldn’t open social media after the team’s 2-0 loss to heated rival Tottenham Hotspur in today’s North London derby.
A Manchester United fan named Tom, who has the popular @utdcynical account, tweeted ‘Augsburg is the level of Xhaka’, which attracted enough attention to get an official response from the Bundesliga side.
Augsburg, which ranks 10th in the Bundesliga after playing nine games, quotes Tom’s post on Twitter with a brutal ‘Respect us’ followed by a full stop.
At the time of writing, the German group’s viral tweet has garnered 35,000 likes. United fans will love that it was one of their own who helped this ace trolling.
Respect us. https://t.co/TomcOCQKco

Xhaka really had a performance to forget, his most notable moment being a hilarious foul on Harry Kane just a minute after the tie that unfortunately says it all.
The central midfielder was also questioned by Sky Sports expert Graeme Souness for his role in Spurs’ second goal, which came at half-time thanks to Kane finishing off a counterattack.
