Toni Kroos had a friendly prod at Manchester City and Sergio Aguero after the Premier League club unveiled a statue in honour of their former striker.
Aguero, who left City last year and has since retired due to a heart condition, is the club’s record goalscorer.
On the 10th anniversary of Aguero’s last-gasp, title-clinching winner against QPR back in 2012, City unveiled a statue of Aguero’s famous celebration.
However, the statue arguably looks more like Real Madrid midfielder Kroos, who picked up on that resemblance.
“Sure?” Kroos tweeted in response to a tweet from BBC Sport journalist Simon Stone, which included a photo of the statue.
It would not be the first time a statue of a player has drawn some ridicule – Cristiano Ronaldo, anyone? – but it may be the first time it has looked so similar to another star name.
