Arsene Wenger was nutmegged in Arsenal training, but how did he take it?
And who was the player doing the nutmegging?
Nutmegs, everybody loves them except the person getting megged – but would you ever nutmeg your boss?
That’s exactly what Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles did in training ahead of the team’s Europa League match against Red Star Belgrade this week, putting the ball through Arsene Wenger’s legs from distance.
Whether the 20-year-old meant it or not is another story for another day – the more pressing question is: how did Wenger take it?
“Well done, well done!” the Frenchman chimed, a little sarcastically?
If so, it could be back to the reserves for the midfielder.
Sorry man. We can't have that. Respect the big man. Back to the u23— Peter (@PPantzar) November 1, 2017
However, it’s well known that Wenger is a man who can appreciate a bit of skill.
Regardless, the fans seemed to enjoy it.
Maybe keep the nutmegs to a minimum if you want a place in the starting XI, fellas.
