New Arsenal signing Matt Turner has sent Gunners fans wild on social media after already proving his allegiance to the north London club.
The New England Revolution goalkeeper, 27, will finalise his £5m switch to the Emirates at the start of July. Featuring in just five matches this season, Turner watched from the sidelines as back-up shot-stopper Dorde Petrovic started in between the sticks for The Revs' 2-1 victory over Minnesota.
Despite not being selected for a final appearance, the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year was keen to showcase his appreciation to supporters at the Gillette Stadium – however, there was one member of the home crowd who Turner snubbed with his signature.
Doing the rounds by scribbling on 'Matt Turner' printouts and goalkeeper shirts, Arsenal's new signing was caught off guard by a Revs supporter donning a Tottenham shirt.
It looked for a moment like the 27-year-old was going to sign his jersey unaware of the fan's north London preference but, upon seeing the Spurs shirt, Turner immediately shouted, "oh no" and walked off.
HAVE YOUR SAY! Was Matt Turner right to snub signing the fan's shirt? Let us know in the comments section.
Keen to save face with his hero, the American fan stated: "You're the only Arsenal player I'll ever like." But Turner was having none of it, pointing to the shirt and replying: "That's disgusting."
The brutally snubbing has gone down remarkably well on social media with the Emirates faithful only too keen to once again mock their north London rivals.
"What a start to his arsenal life and he's not kicked a ball for us yet," commented one supporter. "And I’m in love with him already," stated another.
'That's disgusting' lmaooo of course I'll wait till the pre-season friendlies to form a better opinion of him but this is a great start," hailed a third. While a fourth posted: "Players shouldn't do that to a fan but this is the kind of s***housery I enjoy."
