When Arsenal were pulling up their socks to face the might of old nemesis Bayern Munich, a fan, supposedly a native Chinese, turned for the game in an avatar that has triggered a round of guffaws from the fans.
As the image suggests, the fan turned up for the game in a Petr Cech outfit. However, not the Arsenal one, but in fact, Chelsea’s. Now whether the fan is so ignorant that he doesn’t know of Cech’s current suitors, or doesn’t own an Arsenal kit of him is up for debate.
However you look at it, a debate or a meme, this boy has surely served up a treat with his outfit. Whilst a fellow native posing right next to him dons an Arsenal shirt making his allegiance quite clear, the boy in question has thrown up a silly prattles. Or rather, caused one.
Arsenal drew 1-1 against the German champions in full time, although emerged 3-2 triumphant in the penalty shoot-outs as a measure of salvation. Cech though, wasn’t the hero here as he was subbed off in the 72nd minute itself.
The game may have been a cagey affair, but this Chinese supporter has managed to cast everyone’s mind off the game.
