Former MANCHESTER CITY defender Jason Denayer has risked the wrath of animal lovers… by parading around with a chained TIGER.
The Belgium international spent five years at City but never made the first team.
He spent a season in the top flight on loan to Sunderland and won the Scottish Premiership while on another loan to Celtic.
Denayer, 27, later impressed in France with Lyon – but now plays in the UAE Pro League for Dubai side Shabab Al-Ahli.
He recently took the opportunity to walk the streets of the Middle East emirate with a tiger.
The central defender posted proudly Movie of himself leading the mighty beast by a rusty chain and captioned it, “Walking my cat.”
However, Denayer took steps to prevent abuse on Instagram by limiting comments to his own followers.
Her observations included: “The Lion King With His Tiger,” “You’re the Best,” and “The Boss.”
Former Manchester United striker Memphis Depay was severely abused in 2020 when he posted pictures of himself in Dubai with a liger baby on social media.
Animal rights groups have criticized the Netherlands international for his handling of the cat, a cross between a lion and a tiger.
