Arsenal fans take to Twitter to call out Giroud for his post-final celebrations

Arsenal fans react to Olivier Giroud’s celebration after the Europa League win.

And just like that, Chelsea have claimed their third European trophy and added an extra layer of cream to their season. Arsenal, on the other hand, head back to the chalkboard as their fans are still trying to get over what was a truly infuriating final between two neighbouring teams. But interestingly enough, it was Olivier Giroud’s post-match celebration antics that got the fans’ attention and they were quick to jump on the ex-Gunner’s throat on social media (this video seemingly taken by Jorginho on Instagram and relayed by AFTV online) to let him know what they thought of it.

The Frenchman was seen carrying the Europa League trophy onboard the Chelsea bus heading back home, and his excitement and happiness seemed to rub the Arsenal fans the wrong way. He then apparently proceeds to thank Arsenal for this trophy, which caused an avalanche of reactions. Of course, these fans are not really alone in this as players celebrating against their former clubs is a bit of a “taboo” in the world of football.

Still, the man has just won a major European competition in style and he helped his team to the best of his abilities, regardless of who was on the opposite side of the pitch. While this indeed has the fans divided, some of them just couldn’t stand seeing him celebrate like that.
