​Wandrille Lefevre has been suspended by his Major League Soccer club Montreal Impact, after posting an Instagram picture involving guns and Donald Trump.

While more than a few Premier League stars, could do with taking a break from the internet, Lefevre has set an example to footballers all over the world in how not to use social media. 

The defender, who has featured 47 times for Montreal Impact, scoring two goals in the process, has found himself in hot water following a recent Instagram post.

​​27-year-old  Lefevre posted a picture on Instagram with the caption: "Since Donald is in power, better safe than sorry."


His club Montreal Impact were quick to respond.

​​

And posted on Twitter ​​Impact: "Due to an unacceptable social media post of concern to the club, the Montreal Impact has suspended defender Wandrille Lefevre pending further consideration of this matter."

The MLS players union, however, are unhappy, believing that the MLS have the right to suspend a player. the MLS player' union executive director Bob Foose said that: "We're in discussion with the league about all of it."

Lefevre started his career at French side Montpellier and has been capped three times by Canada.
