Well-known Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan took to Twitter to express his opinion about one of Manchester United’s players after Monday’s transfer announcement.
All the speculation was brought to an end on Monday as the Gunners finally confirmed the acquisition of Henrikh Mkhitaryan from United as part of the swap deal which has seen Alexis Sanchez move to Old Trafford after refusing to extend his contract at the Emirates stadium.
Following the Chilean forward’s switch, Jesse Lingard took to Twitter to send out a welcoming message to his new teammate.
The cringey tweet from Lingard prompted all sorts of responses from Arsenal fans who are still coming to terms with Sanchez’s decision to join a rival club.
And Piers Morgan joined in with his own banter for Lingard as he called for the winger to not celebrate the arrival of Sanchez too much since the former Arsenal star has come to take his place in the United team.
He's taking your place sunshine, enjoy the bench. ?? https://t.co/EahNTEAFmc
