MANCHESTER CITY fans booed their own player Joao Cancelo as Bayern Munich bought on the loanee in their 3-0 Champions League thumping.
The Portugal defender got a hostile Etihad reception when he replaced Alphonso Davies late on as the outclassed German giants tried everything.
Rodri’s brilliant opener on 27 minutes had set up a glorious night for Pep Guardiola’s men.
Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland then struck to round off one of City’s best ever nights in Europe, giving them a commanding lead for the Champions League quarter-final return.
Cancelo was loaned out to Bayern in January following a spat with Guardiola.
And although he was only given nine minutes with the Bundesliga champs already 3-0 down, another ex-City star played the whole game.
Germany winger Leroy Sane played the whole game, forcing home keeper Ederson into a crucial stop just before Haaland notched City’s third goal.
Social media was as ungenerous to Cancelo as fans in the stadium were.
One wrote: “Pep owns this guy. benched by another team.”
Another wrote: “He got benched by Pep, Nagelsmann and Tuchel now. Salah truly finished his career.”

A third claimed: “Benched against us. Poetic.”
And a fourth handed out the warning: “Always respect and trust the coach.”
But a solemn-looking Cancelo was embraced at the final whistle end by City players.
