Arsenal Players Respond to Abusive Tweets in the Best Way Possible

Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalJanuary 8, 2017

The good folks at Paddy Power had a great idea. They've been collecting offensive tweets aimed at Arsenal players, and they wanted to have the players themselves respond.

The above clip shows Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski and Mikel Arteta answer harsh criticism of their abilities.

Is it really true that Podolski can't hit a barn door? Or that Mertesacker turns slower than milk? Or that a granny can take a better penalty than Arteta?

Watch and see.
