Arsenal fans take to Twitter to slate Paul Merson after Torreira comments

Paul Merson is one of those ex-players who gets a lot of stick from the fans he used to turn out for every week. However, it’s all his own doing as he comes out with ludicrous soundbites winding up Arsenal fans. This time around, he’s claimed that the Gunners should sign Abdoulaye Doucoure, claiming he’s ‘much better’ than Lucas Torreira.

The Arsenal fans who have seen this and have reacted badly have nothing against Doucoure. The Frenchman is a sublime midfielder and has been more than a shining light in the current Watford side. However, to say that he’s better than their star midfielder man who joined for a sizeable £26 million last July is frankly ridiculous, and the Gunners are letting him know that.

Merson seems to have some kind of vendetta against his former club with all of the rubbish that he spouts about them, and the supporters have gotten used to just laughing off the things he says. If the 50-year-old had claimed that Doucoure would walk into Arsenal over Granit Xhaka then the fans would have been easier to convince, but they’re not having anything negative said about their Uruguayan terrier.

You can read the Gunners’ responses to Merson’s comments here:

The Gunners cannot believe some of the rubbish that Merson comes out with and will quickly be forgetting his latest bizarre claim.
