‘Absolutely Shocking’ ‘He Had A Bad Day At The Office’ Fans React To Controversial Moment In Arsenal’s Defeat To Forest

Arsenal left-back Nuno Tavares was hauled off before half-time in the Gunners’ 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest yesterday evening.

The Portuguese defender struggled with his passing and decision-making, resulting in manager Mikel Arteta deciding to substitute him.

Tavares reacted by throwing down his gloves on the sidelines, clearly frustrated that he had been taken off so soon, but the majority of supporters on Twitter agreed with Arteta’s decision:


Managers are paid to make the tough calls and Arteta felt he had to replace Tavares with Kieran Tierney, after witnessing what was a very poor display in the first half.

Tavares has impressed on occasions since his arrival from Benfica in the summer, but his concentration and composure do leave a lot to be desired. At 21 years of age, he still has time to improve his game, although his consistency is somewhat of a concern. Whether he’ll react positively or negatively to his early substitution, we shall have to wait and see over the coming weeks.
