PART 2

Soccer 360 - - 90th Minute -

ROB­BERY NO MORE

Bay­ern Munich re­acted to news of Ar­jen Robben’s de­par­ture by pub­lish­ing a pic­ture of him and part­ner in crime Franck Ribery cel­e­brat­ing to­gether, with a tifo of them in the back­ground. The pair were known as ‘Rob­bery’ – a port­man­teau of their sur­names.

RIVER CEL­E­BRATE COPA

River Plate gen­er­ated al­most 200,000 Face­book likes when they posted a cel­e­bra­tory pic­ture af­ter their Copa Lib­er­ta­dores tri­umph over arch-ri­vals Boca Ju­niors, which read ‘The Best Ever’.

BALOTELLI CALLS OUT MI­LAN FANS

In an at­tempt to de­flect crit­i­cism of his own per­for­mances, Mario Balotelli ac­cused Mi­lan fans of lack­ing ‘recog­ni­tion and re­spect’ for his time spent at the club. An bizarre In­sta­gram story, even by his stan­dards.

EVRA CA­RESSES A CHICKEN

Ar­turo Vi­dal has not had the best of starts to his Barcelona ca­reer, and his frus­tra­tions seemed to come to a head when he posted an an­gry emoji as an In­sta­gram story af­ter a three-minute cameo against Tot­ten­ham.

50M TWEETS FOR THE TI­TLE!

Borus­sia Monchenglad­bach cheek­ily asked the Bun­desliga on Twit­ter how many retweets they needed for the ti­tle. The an­swer? Fifty mil­lion. Safe to say, we won’t be see­ing a League de­cided over so­cial me­dia any time soon.
