Arsenal fans rip into Petr Cech for bizarre tweet during humiliation at Nottingham Forest
Arsene Wenger had never lost in the third round of the competition, but Forest’s victory saw the holders crash out of the competition at the City Ground.
David Ospina put in an unconvincing display between the sticks for the away side and Petr Cech was forced to watch the match from home – or that was the plan anyway.
However, instead of scrutining his team-mates’ shocking performance at Forest, the Czech goalkeeper bizarrely chose to tweet just moments after Ben Brereton’s goal to make it 3-1 in the second-half.
‘You’re welcome ! Great tournament , well done to you !’ Cech replied to a previous tweet thanking him for at an appearance at a youth team tournament.
Arsenal fans, unsurprisingly, tore into the shot-stopper for the timing of his tweet and he was forced to explain himself.
‘I’m watching,’ Cech insisted when asked why he wasn’t keeping an eye on the game.
Here’s how Gooners reacted to Cech’s tweet…
