Kyle Walker Wins Golden Tweet Award, Benjamin Mendy Responds Brilliantly
When Kyle Walker was given a 'Golden Tweet' award by Twitter and decided to say he's better at social than Benjamin Mendy, the charismatic City left-back was always going to issue a hilarious reply.
Walker was given the accolade for the way in which he got involved in the Harry Maguire meme over the World Cup. The picture of him speaking to his other half after the quarter final win over Sweden, during which he scored a bullet header to open the scoring, went viral with so many incredible responses.
But none were better than Maguire's fellow Sheffield lad Walker, who saw his tweet blow up.
Yeah so a good header doesn't hurt. I mean the moment you head it proper, you feel it's a good one. Know what I mean love? pic.twitter.com/a5b8UqDjv2- Kyle Walker (@kylewalker2) July 7, 2018
"Yeah so a good header doesn't hurt. I mean the moment you head it proper, you feel it's a good one. Know what I mean love?" he wrote.
The former Spurs right-back collected his gong today at the Etihad and made the claim that his Twitter game is stronger than Mendy.

And Mendy was quick to respond and let him know that he's doing alright for prizes at the moment, having just experienced the small matter of lifting the World Cup trophy with France despite barely playing. He even rubbed salt in the wounds by finishing with the #itscominghome hashtag.
Clearly the former Monaco man hasn't paid too much attention to the comments made by his boss, Pep Guardiola, that he needs to tone down the social media.
PEP: @benmendy23 is Mendy. Sometimes we want to kill him and sometimes you think wow what a player we have. He gives us energy. Mendy has a lot of things to improve and hopefully we can convince him to forget a little bit the social media and improve a few things.- Manchester City (@ManCity) August 12, 2018
