Watch Barcelona legend soak up Arsenal’s impressive victory

Patrick Kluivert watches Arsenal thrash Manchester United at The Emirates

Patrick Kluivert is a man who knows a thing or two about total football having played for Barcelona and the Netherlands during his playing career.

And the retired striker was treated to an exquisite first-half performance from the north London side as the Dutch legend watched Arsenal ease to a 3-0 victory over bitter rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

Alexis Sanchez produced a Johan Cruyff flick to give Arsenal an early lead before Mesut Ozil doubled the home side’s advantage, before the Chile international netted a brilliant third to seal three points.

Kluivert wrote on the photo-sharing app: “What a game @arsenal @manchesterunited”

And Kluivert, who won Eredivisie, La Liga and the Champions League during his playing career, took to Instagram to reflect on a thrilling 90 minutes at The Emirates.

The former Newcastle United striker also bumped into retired Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba at The Emirates and posed for a snap with the ex-England Under-21 international.
