Van Persie Laughs Along As Santos Makes Joke At Chamakh’s Expense
Arsenal striker Robin van Persie laughed at Andre Santos’s twitter picture poking fun at team mate Marouane Chamakh before Monday’s defeat to Wigan. See it here
The Arsenal players may be licking their wounds after a humbling 2-1 defeat to Wigan at the Emirates on Monday night, but they were all jokes and smiles during training before the game.
Andre Santos posted a picture on Twitter on Monday of him, Robin van Persie, Sebastian Squillaci and Bacary Sagna hitching a ride on the back of a trailer while striker Marouane Chamakh ran behind trying to jump on board. The Brazilian defender poked fun at the Moroccan by accompanying the image with “Sorry!! This ride is for good looking lads only..See you later #Marouane”.
Robin Van Persie clearly appreciated Santos’s joke, as the Dutchman used his official Twitter account to re-tweeted his team mate, adding “LOOOL”
Good banter from the lads. This is why i love Twitter. We get little insights into what goes on behind the scenes at the club. Santos seems like a life-loving Brazilian and may have replaced Emmanuel Eboue as the joker within the Arsenal squad.
It’s good to have characters like him around, although not sure he should take his ‘relaxed’ attitude on to the pitch. He was pretty poor against Wigan on Monday night, but he wasn’t the only one! If you want to see my player ratings from the game, check them out here.
