Gabriel aims social media dig at Aubameyang after Arsenal’s win over Chelsea

The Brazilian enjoyed the last laugh both on and off the pitch on Sunday


The latest social media activity on the part of Arsenal star Gabriel Magalhaes has piqued widespread attentions on Sunday evening.

This comes after the Brazilian opted to aim something of a jibe in the direction of ex-Gunners striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

For those not aware, Aubameyang grabbed the headlines online earlier this week, owing to a promo cut for Arsenal’s clash with Chelsea.

Ahead of his first meeting with Mikel Arteta’s troops since departing for Spain and subsequently returning to England in the summer, the Gabonese starred in a pre-match advertisement for BT Sport.

The footage saw Aubameyang tasked with the following line, which quickly sparked widespread debate across the fanbase of his former club:

“Arsenal... it’s nothing personal. I’m back. I’m blue. I’m ready. Let’s go!”

Arteta and co, of course, subsequently went on to have the last laugh on Sunday, emerging on the right side of a 1-0 scoreline to reestablish themselves atop the Premier League table.

One member of Arsenal’s ranks who could not help but rub further salt in the wounds of Aubameyang, though, comes in the form of the aforementioned Gabriel.

After proving match-winner in netting the only goal of the game in west London on Sunday, stopper Gabriel quickly took to his social media platforms, to celebrate the result.

Also included, though, was a less-than-subtle dig at his former teammate, as showcased in the tweet below:
