Manchester United

Marouane Fellaini Belgium

Manchester United fans have had a right dig at this tweet from the club's account...

You would think the folks who run the social media page of one of the largest sports teams in the world, would be social media experts.

But when Manchester United decided to congratulate their midfielder Marouane Fellaini and Belgium for qualifying for Euro 2016 after their convincing 4-1 over Andorra, it didn't quite go to plan. 

Now we can see their goodhearted intentions, but they didn't exactly word it brilliantly and Twitter really let them know about it. 

You'd think fans would have been pleased that their player and part time palm tree was part of a squad which sent their nation to a major tournament, but oh no.

Loads of fans replied to Man United's Tweet having a right dig at them for not using any common sense:
