Angry German fans destroy Ilkay Gundogan’s car

Angry German fans destroy Ilkay Gundogan's car

German fans have wrecked the Man City star’s car after the controversial photo of him with Turkish president.

The car of Germany midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has been destroyed by rioters in the country, while the Manchester City player is out in Russia representing the very people that are against him right now.

German fans took umbrage with both Gundogan and Mesut Ozil back in May after the pair posed for photos with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The nation, as a whole, has become particularly displeased with the pair in the aftermath of the incident.

The controversial photo of the player.

Germany and Turkey’s political issues have caused a sour relationship with the two players. Though both are of Turkish descent, the German internationals were born in Gelsenkirchen, and claim to follow German values ‘100%’, but that hasn’t stopped the public.

And now, things have taken a turn for the worse after it came to light that Gundogan’s car had been wrecked in the streets of Germany. Sport Bild’s football chief Christian Falk broke the news on Twitter on Saturday morning, suggesting that the attack on the car was a result of Gundogan’s photo antics.
