FOOTIE TWEETS: Congratulations for Man Utd, Bayern surprise Barca, Suarez excused by Barton
This week, Manchester United clinched their 20th league title on Monday night and there was plenty of congratulations flying around from all angles.
Chicharito was having some fun on Twitter, posting a championship-winning photo with goalkeeper David de Gea.
Antonio Valencia got patriotic after the title triumph. Translation (This win is dedicated to my family and especially my Dom and my entire Ecuadorian people).
Este triunfo se lo dedico a mi familia y especialmente a mi Dom y a toda mi gente Ecuatoriana .— Antonio Valencia (@7AntoV) April 22, 2013
Former United star keeper Edwin van der Sar also chimed in.
Whilst Nani showed us a celebratory snap from the aftermath.
What an amazing win! Such an honour to win the Premier League. twitter.com/luisnani/statu— Nani (@luisnani) April 22, 2013
Marseille midfielder Joey Barton suggests Pep Guardiola could be joining Bayern Munich ahead of a very exciting time for the German giants in the wake of their Champions League semi-final win on Tuesday night.
Pep must have watched Bayern tonight and thought, 'What a lucky bastard I am!' #vergeofeuropeandominance— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 23, 2013
Whilst ex-Barca ace Gary Lineker feels perhaps Guardiola would be better suited returning to the Nou Camp.
Only one of these sides needs Guardiola and it's not Bayern Munich.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) April 23, 2013
Dietmar Hamann gets in touch with his Bavarian roots, labelling Bayern as a 'world class' side ..(translation Bravo Bayern. One Word: Worldclass)
Bravo Bayern.Ein Wort: Weltklasse— Didi Hamann (@DietmarHamann) April 23, 2013

Dutchman Ruud Gullit was also very complimentary of the German champions.
Gratulations to @bayernmunchen. Deserved to win this game with good football and passion— Ruud Gullit (@GullitR) April 23, 2013
Suarez has alleged bitten someone. Watched the game, didn't see the incident. Whilst you can't condone biting, he is some footballer!— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 21, 2013
You cannot defend Suarez's bite. Its not defendable. You can however defend Suarez the man, the player. Ok, he f*cked up. He'll be punished.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 21, 2013
He has came out and apologised. He'll probably get a ban. He'll no doubt be fined by the club. He is a human who has made a mistake?— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) April 21, 2013
