Manchester City fans have taken to Twitter to slam Aymeric Laporte’s performance against Tottenham on Wednesday, as the Cityzens crashed out of the Champions League on away goals.
The former Athletic Bilbao made an error for Son Heung-Min’s opening goal after he inadvertently prodded the ball into the South Korean’s path.
442oons have charted the entire career of Man City’s main man Sergio Aguero through song in the hilarious video below…
Immediately after his mistake, the Frenchman’s loose touch allowed Lucas Moura to nip in and put Spurs on the attack, where Son doubled his and Tottenham’s tally just two minutes after scoring his first.
Despite a spirited attempt to get back into it, crushed at the hands of VAR in the final moments, Laporte’s two moments of madness ultimately cost his side their chance at a spot in the semi-finals for the first time in their history.
Understandably, the City fans on Twitter didn’t hold back in their criticism of the 24-year-old (he even had to private his account after the game)…
Laporte cost us game tonight terrible defending! #MCFC

Laporte awful. VAR overrated, but the game was lost by those two mistakes early on

Laporte with two mistakes then poor marking on Llorente. Not good enough in a massive game. https://t.co/smuwFKaxFs

Laporte. What have you done.

Laporte’s been brilliant this season but when he’s bad, he’s shocking. Tonight was one of those nights for him & Ederson. Probably needs a rest now, bring Stones back in

Laporte went on private now after being rightly called out for a poor performance tonight. Says it all about our spineless team.
