It would appear Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh has even more reason to stay away from fellow Moroccan Adel Taarabt.
For gloating Taarabt has taken to Twitter to throw a jibe at Gooners after the defeat to QPR and revel in his previous associaton with Tottenham.
Chamakh tested his relationship with Arsene Wenger at the weekend when he, along with Taarabt, was photographed holding a shisha pipe following the 2-1 loss to Rangers.
Taarabt scored in Mark Hughes’ side’s victory over the Gunners and he has since taunted Arsenal supporters on the social networking site by seeking approval for his goal from fans of his former club.
Taarabt’s tweet read: “lol yid fans that goal was for u guys against Arsenal a way to say thank you for the support when i was at Tottenham.”
Of course, Chamakh, 28, has hardly been a hit at the Emirates – he’ scored just once in 17 appearances this season – and his latest indiscretion could well tip the balance in Wenger’s decision to sell him or keep faith in his ability.
Now Wenger will decide if he will punish Chamakh, who came on a free transfer from Bordeaux two years ago.
As for Taarabt…well, he can do one.
