Zenit Get into Funny Twitter Exchange With Daily Mail Over Badge Criticism

Zenit don’t take too kindly to criticism of their club badge as shown in this funny exchange with the Daily Mail on Twitter today.

In case you didn’t know, the Russian outfit decided to change their badge in 2013, moving from their more traditional circular logo to the word Zenit simply written in the Russian alphabet with a star above it.

It’s not too offensive to the eye, and we certainly wouldn’t include it in a list of the worst badges in football – but the Daily Mail have, including it alongside some disgusting badges from the likes of Bohemians, Hamburg and Melbourne Victory.

The website posted the link to their story on Twitter earlier today, no doubt expecting it to get some discussion – but they probably didn’t expect this response from Zenit:

To be fair to the Daily Mail, they took Zenit’s response well and moved to defuse the situation with a complimentary tweet:
