Football supporters thought Wednesday night’s Group C Eufa Champions League game between City and Bundesliga side Borussia M’gladbach would have Guardiola spotting one of his tailored jackets but the Spaniard went a step further.

The 50-year-old’s fashion choice cause a buzz on Twitter as usual but this time wasn’t because he looked like model but rather for the ‘interesting’ crest on the back.

“Sorry Manchester United and Pep Guardiola but that massive City logo on the back of the jacket simply doesn’t make sense. #FashionPolice #UCL #BMGCity,” said one viewer.
