As Real Madrid lifted the elusive Champions League trophy in Milan their bitter rivals FC Barcelona displayed a good gesture by wishing their arch rivals with a tweet in which they congratulated the Los Blancos on winning the UEFA Champions League for a record 11th time.

This gesture did not go down well with the Catalan fans as they criticized the club’s official Twitter handle for such a tweet considering their rivalry. Most of the fans asked for the Tweet to be deleted immediately and used harsh words for the club on this occasion.
