Phil Foden was left enraged after a tweet from his account went viral, appearing to criticize Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

Foden appeared to throw down the gauntlet to Mbappe in the post, which has since been removed, ahead of Manchester City’s Champions League semi-final against PSG later this month.

It said, ‘@KMbappe are you ready,’ with a handshake emoji and a gif of Foden scoring, just minutes after City’s 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

The tweet was sent without Foden’s permission, according to the Daily Mail, and the 20-year-old midfielder is angry.

According to the paper, Foden requested that the tweet be removed immediately, despite the fact that it drew the attention of a number of media commentators, including Gary Neville.

Neville isn’t one to stay on the sidelines, and the Sky Sports pundit weighed in by advising footballers to manage their own social media pages.

“I mentioned on here a few weeks ago about players’ accounts being run by social media firms. Lads, run your own accounts!” he tweeted.

“Your integrity and independence of thinking are on the line. It’s your voice, not someone else’s, that you’re using. By the way, it’s morning. Go ahead and attack it as hard as you can.”

Foden may be concerned about his social media activity, but the Manchester City starlet is letting his play speak for itself on the field.

The teenager scored in both legs of City’s quarter-final tie against Dortmund, his 13th goal of the season securing their place in the semi-final on Wednesday.

City will now face Mbappe and PSG in two legs on April 27th and May 4th, with the winner advancing to the final next month.
