When the Daily Mail had a pop at Zenit, Zenit got some extremely satisfying revenge

Ahead of the Champions League quarter finals on Tuesday night, Mail Online have done a round-up of the worst football club badges:

Wolfsburg - who are playing Real Madrid in Madrid tonight - gets a dishonourable mention, but the top (worst) spot goes to Portugal's Pacos de Ferreira for an outdated "disgrace" of a badge.

Coming in at number five, though, is Zenit Saint Petersburg:

Zenit's previous badge had something about it. It was circular, with a football poking out from behind the club name which was written in the Russian constructivism style.

There was also an old fashioned ship at the top of it, a reference to the country's naval fleet which is based in the city.

The current crest has lost that detail and the circular shape, leaving simply the club's name written in the Russian alphabet. Not really a badge, is it?

Zenit weren't very impressed with the Mail's slur on their design cred.

And someone at the club decided to drag them back:

Mic. Drop.
