It wasn’t only their teams performance on the pitch at Old Trafford that angered many Arsenal fans on Saturday. Gooners were left fuming after seeing hapless left back Andre Santos accepting former captain Robin van Persie’s shirt at half time during the Gunners 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.
Fans flocked to Twitter to voice their disgust calling Santos unprofessional, accused the Brazilian of showing too much respect to an opponent during a match and claiming he should have been concentrating on the game and improving his poor form. Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour was also left angered by the event:
“That’s a joke. I wouldn’t have that. At half-time? He should be concentrating on his game and he was having a nightmare.
“He can’t play in a back four as he gets caught out of position all the time.”
