Rival fans are having the time of their lives making fun of Arsenal, and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has now joined in on the act on Twitter.
The Ivorian troubled Arsenal almost every time he played against us. He scored 13 goals and provided four assists in 15 appearances over the years, losing just once – a 3-1 defeat at the Emirates all the way back in 2010.
Arsenal fans haven’t had to worry about Drogba for a few years now thanks to his retirement. However, the legendary Ivorian has come back to haunt us through a cheeky dig on Twitter, before quickly deleting it.
Drogba mocks Arsenal on Twitter
Arsenal announced on Monday that Drogba’s former teammate Willian had left the club after terminating his contract. The Brazilian had a torrid time at the Emirates and he simply had to go, but he isn’t the only ex-Chelsea man to leave this summer.
David Luiz was released by Arsenal at the end of his contract earlier this summer. He definitely wasn’t as bad as Willian was, but he did have some shaky moments at the Emirates, much to the joy of Chelsea supporters.
Premier League legend Petr Cech was also here for a few years. His experience helped the Gunners in a way, but his signing can’t really be termed as a success either. Drogba used all three players’ examples to mock Arsenal on Twitter but quickly deleted his tweet.
The Insider’s View:
Cech, Luiz and Willian definitely gave Chelsea fans more to cheer about than Arsenal supporters. Drogba’s tweet shows everyone at Stamford Bridge still appreciates the trio, and rightly so, as they’ve all been excellent ambassadors for the Premier League over the years.
Sadly, none of them really had any success at Arsenal. A case can be made for Luiz, who, despite a few notable errors in important games, gave his all and helped us win the FA Cup under Mikel Arteta last year.
Chelsea fans would’ve certainly enjoyed Drogba’s latest tweet. Some Arsenal fans are a bit annoyed, but it’s just friendly banter, and we can all move on now that all three of them have nothing to do with our club anymore.
