England new-boy Toney slams ‘cringey’ Arsenal after ‘nice kickabout with the boys’ Twitter jibe following Brentford loss

    IVAN TONEY branded Arsenal “cringey” for their Twitter jibes.

    The England new boy enraged the Gunners by posting “Nice kickabout with the boys” after his Brentford side beat them 2-0 last season.

    Defender Gabriel was the second Gunner to repeat Ivan Toney’s message – after Arsenal won 3-0 at Brentford on Sunday

    That tweet was repeated by Alexandre Lacazette when Arsenal defeated the Bees at the Emirates last term — and again by Gabriel when his team won 3-0 at Brentford on Sunday.

    But striker Toney — called up by England for the first time before Friday’s clash with Italy — said: “Once was funny but the second time was a bit cringey.

    “I bit my tongue, I wanted to reply, I wanted to nibble.

    “But fair play to them, they played very well. They are a different Arsenal side to what we played before. They are doing well.”

    Gunners boss Mikel Arteta also used Toney’s original “kickabout” tweet as motivation to fire up his troops before last season’s return match.

    But Toney, with five goals in seven games this campaign, reckons he could score even more playing for a club such as Arsenal or Manchester City.

    He said: “It is easy to say if I was in their team I would score goals but when you play teams like them they dominate possession.

    “So in theory you are more likely to score goals and have a lot more opportunities.

    “But you still have to put it in the back of the net so until I am there, who knows?

    “Hopefully one day I will be in their shoes and have that opportunity to score goals like Erling Haaland and Gabriel Jesus.”
