Things We Love: Bandaged Blues & Lion King

Things We Love: Bandaged Blues & Lion King
Manchester City players past and present have produced the goods on social media this week for a bumper edition of Things We Love.

So, let’s take a look at what internet offerings have a raised a smile at City HQ over the last seven days…

Naked conga

Kevin De Bruyne’s white-hot run of form has quite rightly earned praise from all corners of the football fraternity, but none of that compares to Jo Lake's – wife of Paul – bold promise of what will happen if he’s not crowned PFA Player of the Year.

Inspired by Disney

Not content with a lung-busting run and assist for Gabriel Jesus’ opener against Stoke, Kyle Walker took to Twitter to immortalise the celebration in recognition of its similarity with a Disney classic.

And we most definitely approve!

Music man

Football and music have long been synonymous in the wonderful city we call home.

That was evident again recently as one of Manchester’s best musical exports, Morrissey, released the video for his new single, Spent the Day in Bed, featuring none other than former Blue, Joey Barton.

Shark Team attire

Benjamin Mendy and his Shark Team have been getting a lot of love recently and now they’ve got a uniform of sorts.

The delightfully named City fan, ‘Me Julie’, so called by Nothing Without You feature, has been turning out more wonderful knits, with some brilliant Shark Team headwear.

Bandaged Blues

More head gear now, but of a slightly different variety…

Pablo Zabaleta’s willingness to put his body on the line for the cause has gone down in City folklore and the image of him bloodied and bandaged typifies his spell at the Etihad.

Against Napoli, David Silva was the latest player to require head protection and Zaba’s reaction proved, yet again, while he’ll always be fondly remembered in these parts.

The football feeder

We all know footballers follow healthy lifestyles, but what’s it like to be the man responsible for making sure it’s as delicious as possible?

BBC Sport recently caught up with Michelin star trained, Jonny Marsh, the personal chef of De Bruyne, Walker and Ilkay Gundogan, for a revealing and amusing insight.
