Manchester United’s unique way of announcing their pre-season friendly with Bayern Munich on Twitter was impossible not to notice and AS Roma used their whacky sense of humour to roast the European giants.
Roma, clearly flying high after beating of the likes of Barcelona to the signing of Dutch wondered Justin Kluivert, posted this:
Football club accounts staging scripted chats with each other on Twitter is:
⚪ HILARIOUS bantz
⚪ German club behaviour
🔘 Just terrible. The worst. The absolute definition of everything that is bad about Modern Football.

Bayern were quick to respond:
— FC Bayern US (@FCBayernUS) June 12, 2018
Twitter user Saranda, who got Bayer Leverkusen involved in the United-Bayern tete-a-tete weighed in again:
One thing is for sure, @bayer04_en was invited by me and there’s nothing scripted.
— Saranda (@sarandasahitis) June 12, 2018
A bemused Bayer admin then posted this in response:
It’s true – he brought our attention to thread and we were just like pic.twitter.com/Wm9eEdR64d

Clearly, with the club season over, the admins of these football clubs’ accounts have a lot of spare time on their hands, much to the delight of Twitter inhabitants.

Roma have been ruling the roost on social media of late, with their inimitable style of announcing midfielder Brian Cristante’s arrival going viral for a variety of reasons.
With the 2018 FIFA World Cup barely 24 hours away from kick off, fans will momentarily forget their club allegiances and unite for their respective countries as the biggest sporting competition gets underway.
The likes of Germany, Brazil, France and Spain are among the favourites for the quadrennial showpiece, while Belgium, Portugal and Argentina can’t be completely ruled out.
