Joleon Lescott Makes Fun of Yaya Toure's Birthday Controversy on Twitter

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterAugust 16, 2014

Yaya Toure birthday jokes: Will they ever get old? 

To Toure's former Manchester City team-mate Joleon Lescott, they apparently will not. 

Toure had a well-documented row with his employer over the club apparently forgetting his birthday. 

So when Lescott was wished well on his big day by West Brom on Twitter, he responded in Toure-like fashion and threatened to quit if he didn't get a cake. 

Thankfully, West Brom were saved by Lescott's hashtag
