Man City's Hashtag After Releasing Jesus Navas Backfires Immeasurably

Man City's Hashtag After Releasing Jesus Navas Backfires Immeasurably

Manchester City today announced the somewhat surprising departure of Jesus Navas from the club, just weeks after it was strongly suggested he would be granted a new contract.

Following the Spanish winger out the door will be left-back Gael Clichy, and substitute goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

Jesus Navas famously hasn't scored a Premier League goal in his last 93 league appearances at City, though did manage four in 2013/2014. He also scored four goals in other competitions during his four-year spell after arriving from Sevilla.

Manchester City's efforts to have fans pay tribute to the departing Navas were botched, however, by their rather naive use of the hashtag '#ThankYouJesus' which, if you're not Twitter-savvy, might be considered a somewhat crowded market for tweets.

And so, instead of fantastic Navas memories as the club intended, the hashtag instead provides some altogether different takes on his stint at the club, with many tasteless references to the cross.

City also tweeted the hashtag '#ThankYouGael' to bid farewell to French left-back Clichy. Their '#ThankYouWilly' effort for 'keeper Caballero, however, produced similarly entertaining results to #ThankYouJesus.
