The Tweets: Arsenal fans are ridiculed for booing Napoli’s Higuain during the Emirates Cup
It was one of the transfer sagas of the summer, and Arsenal lost out.
For a large part of the 2103 summer, Arsenal were heavily linked to Argentine international striker Gonzalo Higuain. It was well known that Real Madrid were willing to sell the striker, and the Gunners were long tipped to be his next suitors.
However, as we now know, Higuain never arrived at the Emirates. Instead Napoli, flush after Edinson Cavani’s €63m move to PSG, had the funds to land the sought-after striker, and Arsenal fans were once again left to mull over the implications of having a top-class centre-forward decide not to join Arsene Wenger’s team.
Over the weekend Arsenal fans got the opportunity to watch Higuain up-close and personal during the Emirates Cup, and the Gunners supporters showered a chorus of boos onto Napoli’s new attacker.
Sour grapes? Most people on Twitter thought so.

Ok, supporters of the booing at a pre-season game, make a case to me for booing Higuain. You can't.

It doesn't make sense that Arsenal fans are booing Higuain. Arsenal didn't want to pay what Madrid wanted, Napoli did. End of. Idiots.

Come on. What's the booing of Higuain all about? Hardly his fault Arsenal didn't value him as highly as Napoli or Real Madrid. Get over it.
