Shots Fired: Moussa Dembélé Slams Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City Move With Some Salty Tweets

Dembélé, who now plays for Lyon, had something to say about his former manager's move back to the Premier League. Twitter loves it.

It seems like not everyone is happy with Brendan Rodger's move to Leicester City.

The Northern Irishman and former Liverpool manager was announced as the Foxes' new manager on Tuesday after the sacking of Claude Puel. Rodgers spent the last two-and-a-half seasons as the manager of Scottish giant Celtic, leading the Goops to two Scottish Premier Leagues, two Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cup titles.

Celtic fans wished Rodgers well after his move was announced, but one man in particular was salty to say the least: Moussa Dembélé.

Dembélé, the former prolific Celtic striker, was signed by and played for Rodgers and scored 51 goals in 94 appearances for Celtic. His two-year rise meant interest from European clubs increased. This past summer, the Frenchman wanted to leave Celtic and tried to force a move away from Glasgow.

Rodgers was unhappy with his conduct in the matter, saying: "The whole episode was disappointing. ... There was a line overstepped from a behavior perspective."

Clearly, the Lyon striker did not like what was said and after Rodger's move to Leicester was announced he tweeted some very passive-aggressive tweets. Well, they were really just aggressive. 

There certainly is some animosity against Rodgers, isn't there? Dembélé was quick with his tweets and I guess you can't blame him after the harsh words from his former manager.

It certainly is ironic that Rodgers left just seven months after Dembélé did. It was the chance for the now-Lyon striker to give his two cents. It seemed like his row with Rodgers was behind him, but clearly it wasn't.
