Arsenal's Mathieu Flamini Doesn't Have Time for Showboaters at Emirates Cup

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterAugust 4, 2014

Arsenal's Mathieu Flamini was clearly underwhelmed by Nabil Dirar's tricks on the wing during the club's friendly with Monaco, and the Frenchman had a no-nonsense solution to deal with the situation.

The Gunners lost the match 1-0, and Monaco were trying to kill time in the dying moments to hang on to the win.

Flamini, as if from nowhere, slides in to the shot with a perfectly judged sliding tackle.

Monaco held on, but Dirar may think twice about killing time like that in the future.
