‘I am seeing Pirlo’: Some Arsenal fans blown away by £50k-a-week man’s display yesterday

A number of Arsenal fans have been praising Mohamed Elneny for his impressive display in yesterday’s Europa League victory.

The 28-year-old Egypt international has made 96 appearances for Arsenal since joining from Swiss outfit FC Basel in 2016 for a reported £7million (The Independent).

Last season, on Unai Emery’s watch, Elneny left Arsenal for a season-long loan at Besiktas, becoming a mainstay of their squad and making 36 appearances in all competitions.

Of those, 27 came in the Superlig, Elneny scoring one goal and registering four assists as the Black Eagles finished third in the table to seal Champions League qualification.

This season, the midfielder has surged into first-team contention for Mikel Arteta, and has made seven appearances in all competitions, including three Premier League starts.

In yesterday’s 2-1 win at Rapid Vienna, Elneny put in yet another disciplined and creative performance, including a particularly neat through-ball to Hector Bellerin.

Here is what some Arsenal fans were saying about the £50,000-a-week ace:


Arsenal fell behind in the Austrian capital due to Taxiarchis Fountas’ 51st-minute opener, courtesy of a Bernd Leno error, but David Luiz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored midway through the second half for all three points.
