Phil Foden has sacked his social media company over the controversial tweet sent out to Kylian Mbappe this week.
But Ten Toes Media insist the tweet was approved by the Manchester City star and his representatives.
The 20-year-old was reportedly left seething with the post and swiftly deleted it from his account.
That fury led to their decision to part company with Ten Toes Media, who previously took charge of Foden’s entire social media platforms.
But now the sacked Social Media Company have hit back at Foden and his team, stressing that company policy is for every post to be approved in advance by the client or their representatives before it is sent out.
In a statement issued on Friday, Ten Toes Media founder Ben Weisfeld said: ”We are saddened with the current situation.
“Since the company was founded we have adopted a process which requires all posts to be approved in advance by the talent / representative – no exceptions.
“They always have been approved – that has been true for 4 years and is still true today.
“Phil Foden is a special person and footballer and we wish him the very best going forward.”
