- Arsenal have been far from impressive in recent times
- A 95-year-old grandma is seen in a video dissecting latest happenings in the Premier League
- The Nigerian woman said although Gunners have lost games in recent times, Arsenal have also defeated teams
A video of a Nigerian grandma who seems to be a staunch fan of Arsenal football club of England has surfaced online as she is seen dissecting latest happenings in the Premier League.
In the footage, the mother who spoke in the Yoruba dialect expressed her undying love for the Gunners as she gave accurate analysis of the latest in the EPL.
She explained that although she loved the way Chelsea defeated Manchester City recently, if the result had gone the other way, it would have favoured Arsenal.
“Tomorrow is our match,” she started, and when asked if her club is beaten she replied: “It won’t be the first time they are beating us? They beat us and we beat some too and that’s how life is.
"Giroud was with us before he went to Chelsea; Iwobi left us to join Everton. Lacazette is still with us.
“Guardiola was the one that tutored Arteta and if he likes he should return to hurt his former boss. I was so happy when Chelsea defeated Manchester City, however it the result had gone in favour of City, it would have favoured me (Arsenal).”
There are millions of Arsenal fans in Nigeria, but many have repeatedly expressed disappointment with the club in recent times.
Earlier, popular Nigerian entertainer DJ Cuppy seems to have dumped Arsenal for their Premier League rivals Manchester United after Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo’s goal helped Manchester United book FA Cup semi-final ticket.
Ighalo continued his impressive form for United as he has continued to score in all matches he started for the club.
The 30-year-old was left unmarked in six yards away from goal as he flicked the ball past Tim Crul in goal against Norwich in the FA Cup.
And just before kick-off of the game, DJ Cuppy had dared the Nigerian to score promising that she will officially become a Manchester United fan. "As a Nigerian I think it’s only right that if Odion Ighalo scores a goal today... I will officially join Manchester United as a fan,” she wrote.
Legit.ng earlier reported that ManUnited will battle Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals as Arsenal entertain Man City in the other fixture.
United sealed a place in the semis after they stunned Norwich City 2-1 in the quarters played on Saturday, June 28.
However, they had to rely on a late goal from Harry Maguire to secure a hard-fought victory.
