Arsenal star Alex Iwobi was slammed as disgusting and disrespectful on social media after holding his nose following a stand-off with Hamari Traore.
Iwobi squared off with his Rennes opponent late in the 3-0 win at the Emirates on Tuesday night.
Some Twitter users found Iwobi’s gag hilarious.
But many others criticised the Arsenal midfielder, calling him “unprofessional” and “classless”.
