Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas has been ridiculed by Arsenal fans following Spurs’ humiliating Europa League exit.
Jenas was in an angry mood following the north London derby on Sunday as Spurs went down 2-1 to their bitter rivals courtesy of a controversial Alexandre Lacazette penalty.
In the aftermath of the game, the TV pundit voiced his frustration at the decision both online and on Match of the Day.
The ex-Spurs man was adamant that the penalty shouldn’t have been awarded and was involved in a heated discussion with former Arsenal defender Martin Keown on the BBC highlights show.
Jenas then took to Twitter to hit back at Arsenal supporters who disagreed with his analysis, inferring that Spurs would get their revenge by potentially winning the Europa League.
The former England international also posted a video of himself driving during an episode of Top Gear to “escape” his tormentors and salt-shaker emojis to mock those who criticised him.
However, despite holding a 2-0 lead from the first leg of their last 16 tie with Dinamo Zagreb, Tottenham somehow surrendered their advantage on their trip to the Croatian capital.
A hat-trick from Zagreb midfielder Mislav Orsic inspired Zagrab to a 3-0 victory, sending Spurs crashing out 3-2 on aggregate.
In the wake of this astounding and embarrassing result, Arsenal fans have jumped on Jenas’ tweet.
Cheeky Gunners fans bombarded Jenas’ mentions, mocking him for his ill-advised message.
Arsenal themselves managed to navigate their way through their round of 16 tie against Olympiakos but not without a scare.
Having led 3-1 from the first leg in Greece, Mikel Arteta’s side suffered a 1-0 defeat courtesy of a Youssef El-Arabi’s deflected second half strike.
Holding on for a 3-2 aggregate victory, fans were able to enjoy their night further thanks to Jenas and his premature tweet.
