Lukas Podolski, never one to miss the opportunity for a bit of mischief on social media, couldn’t help himself from poking fun at former Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole.

Cole has been trolled relentlessly on Twitter and Instagram this summer after he was pictured “lurking” in the side of one of Roma’s team photos following his transfer to the Serie A club.

The pose has even been given its own hashtag: #AshleyColeLurking.

Now, Arsenal forward Podolski has become the latest player to have a dig at the left-back by posting a picture of Cole photoshopped into the Gunners’ team picture.

Podolski posted the picture above on Instagram and wrote: “Whoever says taking team pictures is boring has never taken pictures with us…:) #Poldi #aha #LP9 #goodtimes #keepsmiling #AFC #Together #Teamphoto #lurking #AFC #RedArmy”

Cole recently proved that he is a good sport as he recreated his awkward pose on a night out with former team-mate John Terry.
