Citizen's arrest Schalke plead with Man City to stop and wade into Brexit during 7-0 loss
Chipo|March. 13, 2019
SCHALKE pleaded with Manchester City's stars to stop and waded into the Brexit debate in a hilarious Twitter commentary during their 7-0 loss at the Etihad.
The Bundesliga club were stunned as their Champions League dream came to a humiliating end as former hero Leroy Sane ran riot with a goal and a hat-trick of assists.
Domenico Tedesco's players eventually succumbed to a 10-2 aggregate loss to the Citizens but the club's media did its best to distract its fan off the field.
Aguero bagged a first-half brace from the penalty spot and a VAR awarded striker and Schalke expressed their reactions at the decisions through some amusing GIFs.
The club's Twitter admin also had an excellent response to Gary Lineker's claim that "Schalke might lose just as heavily as our Prime Minister."
Hours after the PM was heavily beaten over Brexit deal, the Bundesliga club replied: "I'd like to see Theresa May try and defend against @LeroySane19".

While Schalke's players were left downbeat after further strikes from Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus, the same could not be said of their fans.
With the club's Twitter content keeping fans back home on side, the travelling fans made their voices heard throughout the night.
An estimated 3,000 away supporters first threw a massive party on the streets of Manchester ahead of the second leg last-16 tie.
And despite the scoreline, the German fans were often the ones heard still singing in an otherwise quiet and mundane Etihad.
