They may earn thousands of pounds a week but – believe it or not – Premier League footballers need a much-needed break during the summer.
A gruelling season with up to sixty matches takes its toll so they can be forgiven for letting their hair down in the off-season.
However, some are guilty of over-indulging when there’s no game to come on Saturday. Step forward, then, Manchester United star Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Red Devils posted a tweet on Thursday afternoon where the Armenian was pictured promoting the club’s new home shirt.
However, fans couldn’t help but notice Mkhitaryan had er, enjoyed, his time off and were quick to let the club know.
Some fans were pretty cruel…

United’s social team then responded by deleting the tweet but not before screenshots were taken.
