Man City’s Ilkay Gundogan Was Booed and Jeered by Germany Supporters Last Night

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan was booed and jeered by his own supporters last night as Germany put the final touches on their preparation for the World Cup.

The holding midfielder started the 2-1 friendly victory over Saudi Arabia on the bench, but was soon made to feel pretty unwelcome by the Leverkusen crowd when he came on, with fans booing every time he touched the ball as per Sky Sports.

It’s thought the bad reaction was down to a recent meet-and-greet with Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Along with Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil, Gundogan posed for photos with the controversial leader and referred to him as “my president” on social media.

Although Ozil and Gundogan were born in the German city of Gelsenkirchen, both players are of Turkish descent.

And it seems those comments have not gone down well with the DFB supporters, but it remains to be seen if the ill-will will be carried over into the tournament in Russia.

What do you think of the situation?
