Arsenal fans react to Lukaku comments
Some Arsenal fans were reacting after Romelu Lukaku commented on the potential of playing for the Gunners.
What’s the story?
After the 2-0 win over their London rivals, the Chelsea forward was asked whether he would play for the club. When asked the question by beIN SPORTS, the Belgian replied: ‘No, thank you’.
It took the Belgium international just 15 minutes to open his account for the Blues on his second debut. Reece James scored a second to give Thomas Tuchel’s men all three points at the Emirates Stadium.
However, it was the former Internazionale man who stole all the headlines with his performance. He bullied Arsenal defence all game long, especially Pablo Mari.
Lukaku comments a brutal reminder of the stature of Arsenal
At the start of the 21st century, you could not imagine a player making a comment like this.
Alongside Manchester United, Arsene Wenger’s side were the two biggest sides in England.
You could bet any amount of money players would jump at the chance of joining either club.
However, the comments from Lukaku is a brutal reminder of the current stature of Arsenal in world football.
Under Mikel Arteta and his predecessors, the outfit has fallen far from grace in a sad turn of events.
Here is how fans reacted…
