Eight times clubs and countries have shown unnecessary affection

When the Manchester City players walked out onto the pitch in back-to-front Gundogan shirts you could only assume the worst, and it proved to be so. The City players had indeed come out to pay tribute to a player who had torn his ACL

In one of the most bizarre tributes City weighed up the occasion, decided on the appropriate measure to take and got it horrifically wrong. I mean nothing really warranted the tribute they pulled out. They’re not the only club to have taken something way too far and so here are eight times clubs went way over the top.

Loads of clubs have made some very bad decisions in their time – United payed £28 million for Fellaini after all. Nothing’s more cringeworthy than a poorly judged reaction though, as these clubs have proved.
