Granada threaten own sponsors over ‘disrespectful’ heat map tweet

After shipping six goals against Atletico Madrid, Granada’s fortunes didn’t get any better once the game had finished.

One of the club’s sponsors, Winamax Deportes, a betting company, shared a post on Twitter that included a mockup of Joao Felix’s heat map which had been shaped to look like a penis at one end, and a buttocks at the other.

“Granada CF demands a public apology and an immediate rectification to @WinamaxSports for its hurtful and disrespectful tweet towards the club and its fans,” the club said in a statement.

“Likewise, we reserve ourselves to undertake appropriate actions in defence of the interests of an 89-year-old institution.”

Luis Suarez made his debut in the match, getting his Atletico career off to a dream start, scoring twice and grabbing an assist after coming off the bench.
