The banter between Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos over ‘trophy repairs’ is scaling new heights and Twitter is loving it.

City, who stormed to the Premier League title, became the butt of jokes after Ukrainian fullback Oleksandr Zinchenko nudged the trophy off its pedestal on Sunday.

While celebrating Yaya Toure’s winners medal, the Sky Blues’e over-enthusiasm got the better of them, but no harm was done as an executive promptly propped the trophy back up, much to the relief of Zinchenko and Co.

But of course, the incident had not gone unnoticed, with thousands delighting with a rare City blunder and on Monday, Gundogan posted this in jest:

Little did he know, that Ramos would be the first to respond:

But in the end, Gundogan had the last laugh with this tongue-in-cheek riposte:

Gundogan and Ramos are, of course, referring to the famous incident in 2011 when Real won the Copa del Rey.

And while parading through the city of Madrid in an open-top bus with the trophy, the centre-back inadvertently dropped it from a considerable height.

The King’s Cup title did require some repairing, reportedly, but in the end it did get fixed so everyone went home happy, but it’s always a good sign to see footballers indulging in some good-natured ribbing on social media.

Ramos will have a chance to make amends for his earlier gaffe when Real take on Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final on May 26 in Kiev.

Should Los Blancos claim the title, they will require extra precautions to ensure their skipper doesn’t drop the prize.
