Kylian Mbappe hits back at farmers league dig after Lyon beat Man City. He tweeted “FARMERS LEAGUE” alongside a clown emoji and tagged Lyon’s account.
Mbappe hit back at “farmers league” jibes as the Paris Saint-Germain ace praised Lyon for beating Manchester City. The term is often used to criticise the quality of France’s Ligue 1.
But after Lyon’s shock 3-1 win over City in the Champions League quarter-finals, Mbappe wasn’t having any of it.
He tweeted “FARMERS LEAGUE” alongside a clown emoji and tagged Lyon’s official account next to three clapping hands.
PSG only made it into the semi-finals thanks to a very late show against Italian side Atalanta with two goals in injury time sealing their first EVER Champions League semi.
The connotations of the phrase stem from the widely-held view that the French league is the weakest of the top five European competitions.
Behind the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A.
