Man City flop risks animal rights outrage as he’s filmed walking his pet TIGER on the street
EX-MANCHESTER CITY defender Jason Denayer has risked the wrath of animal lovers by parading around with a chained-up TIGER.
The Belgium international spent five years with City, but never broke into their first team.

He had a season in the top flight on loan to Sunderland, and won the Scottish Premiership during another loan to Celtic.
Denayer, 27, went on to impress in France with Lyon and featured in Euro 2016 for Belgium – but now plays in the UAE Pro League for Dubai club Shabab Al-Ahli.
He recently took the opportunity to take a tiger for a walk through the streets of the Middle Eastern emirate.
The centre-back proudly posted film of himself leading the powerful beast on a rusty chain, and captioned it: “Walking my cat.”
However, Denayer took steps to avoid abuse on Instagram by restricting comments to his own followers.
Their observations included: “The Lion King with his tiger,” “You’re the best” and “The boss.”
Former Manchester United striker Memphis Depay came in for ferocious abuse in 2020 when posting social media images of himself in Dubai with a baby liger.
Animal rights groups criticised the Holland international for interacting with the feline, a cross between a lion and a tiger.
