Drogba Mocks Arsenal After Willian Leaves Club
Former Chelsea star Didier Drogba is still winding up Arsenal fans even in his post-playing days after appearing to mock the club for allowing Willian to leave for free.
Drogba scored 13 goals against Arsenal during his playing days – and the Chelsea legend is winding up Gunners fans even now after mocking the north Londoners for letting Willian leave for free.
The Brazilian midfielder completed a move back to his home country with Corinthians after Arsenal cancelled his contract on Monday.
His time at the Emirates will not be remembered fondly by Arsenal fans, who never really warmed to the 33-year-old following his free transfer from Chelsea last summer.
Part of that was down to Willian’s inconsistent form, with the midfielder doing little to justify his three-year deal reportedly worth more than £200,000-per-week.
Once Willian’s departure was confirmed, he posted a collage of images on Twitter with a caption that read: “Thank you Arsenal.”
The picture received over 50,000 interaction – including one from Drogba, who briefly played alongside Willian at Stamford Bridge during the 2014-15 season.
He quote-tweeted the post and wrote: “Oh Willyyyyyyyyyyyyyy haaaaaaaannnnnnnnnn Come back home” – followed by a wink emoji and a blue heart.
Later, Drogba replied to his own post with ten cry laughing emojis, appearing to mock Arsenal supporters.
