Bayern Munich poke fun at West Brom's Fellaini gaffe with Twitter quip

As you may recall, West Brom Tweeted themselves into a cul-de-sac on Monday night when the club's social media team aimed a jibe at Manchester United substitute Marouane Fellaini as he prepared to enter the fray at half-time, only for the fuzzy Belgian to score a spectacular(ish) equalising goal shortly after coming on.

Sadly for West Brom, it seems that their little Twitter gaffe has become a meme in its own right, with Bayern Munich gently mocking the Baggies' and their ill-fated Tweet by using the same blueprint to welcome Franck Ribery onto the pitch during the German side's 7-1 demolition of Roma on Tuesday evening.

Much like Fellaini, Ribery took roughly 10 minutes to get himself on the scoresheet after his second-half introduction, lobbing a classy shot over Morgan De Sanctis to put Bayern 6-1 up on the night.

Elsewhere, West Brom's local rivals Wolves also used the same template to have a sly dig at their Premier League neighbours as midfielder Michael Jacobs prepared to come on during their 2-0 Championship victory over Middlesbrough.

However, the Baggies were just about able to fend off Wolves' quip by subtly drawing attention to the entire division's difference between the two sides.

Nicely played. "He who laughs last..." and all that!
