Spartak Moscow’s Twitter account continues to take no prisoners with its tweets it would seem after poking fun at Manchester City for their latest Champions League exit.
@fcsm_eng joked that the Cityzens still held the same number of trophies from the competition as the Russian top-flight-based outfit after succumbing to a late capitulation at the hands of 13-time winners Real Madrid.
Can confirm that we have the same amount of UCL trophies as Manchester City.

With one trophy in the bag and three remaining in our bid for a slice of history in the form of a quadruple haul of silverware, we’ll be as determined as ever to strike gold in Paris.
