Chelsea legend trolls Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

Former Chelsea defender Mario Melchiot lands himself in hot water with Arsenal supporters on Twitter

Mario Melchiot aimed a cheeky dig at Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on Twitter on Thursday night.

The former Chelsea defender took to the social media to react to the news that Parma have been forced to sell some of their silverware in a bid to save the Serie D club.

Parma have won three Coppa Italias (1992, 1999 and 2002), Cup Winners’ Cup (1993), European Super Cup (1994), UEFA Cups (1995, 1999) and the Italian Super Cup (1999).

And Melchiot suggested that Arsenal manager Wenger could loosen his purse strings and add some much-needed silverware to Emirates Stadium’s trophy cabinet.

The FA Cup holders suffered a shock 2-0 defeat by West Ham United at Emirates Stadium on Sunday after goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Mauro Zarate sealed a victory for the Hammers.

Arsenal make the trip to London rivals Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the early kick-off on Sunday afternoon.
