Manchester City fans critical of Ilkay Gundogan despite Schalke victory

Ilkay Gundogan completed 90 minutes in the away win over Schalke 04 on Wednesday night – and many Manchester City fans on Twitter were critical of his performance.

Pep Guardiola’s side recorded a stunning 3-2 victory over the Bundesliga outfit in the first leg of a last-16 Champions League tie.

In-form striker Sergio Aguero opened the scoring in Germany, but ex-Tottenham midfielder Nabil Bentaleb scored two penalties before half-time to put Schalke in the ascendancy.

Manchester City then saw defender Nicolas Otamendi dismissed for his second yellow card in the 68th minute, which left the Premier League champions in trouble.

But two late goals from attackers Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling have put the English heavyweights in control of the tie with three away goals.

A selection of Manchester City fans on social media were still angry with Gundogan despite a last-gasp victory.

He’s been an important player this campaign at the Etihad Stadium and brings great experience, but supporters were frustrated with his latest display.

Here are some of the Manchester City fans ripping into Gundogan:
