Arsenal stars Theo Walcott, Kieran Gibbs and Mathieu Flamini were seen embracing former Gunner Kolo Toure in the tunnel ahead of our clash against Liverpool on Monday night.
In the new ‘Tunnel Vision’ feature introduced by the club, Toure is seen talking to kit-man Vic Akers, before a number of our players rushed to hug the Invincible defender.
Only a few members of our current squad have been here long enough to have shared a dressing room with Toure, given that he departed for Manchester City in 2009.
They include the aforementioned trio, as well as Aaron Ramsey who played with the Ivorian for one season before he joined our Premier League rivals.
Arsenal transfer news
Toure will forever be remembered as a hero for his contribution to the greatest team we have ever seen in the red and white, but his departure to the newly rich Man City has tainted his image.
- Arsenal keeping tabs on €40m Italy star after ‘outstanding’ season
- Where Arsenal would have finished in the league without VAR
- Arsenal’s top Hector Bellerin replacement is now available for £30m
While he departed in a peaceful manner, the 34-year-old will be listed among the other players who jumped ship when the finances got tight in north London.
Check out the embrace which took place in the tunnel on Monday night.
