Someone Made a Harsh Change to Mathieu Flamini’s Wikipedia After Barcelona Loss

Someone Made a Harsh Change to Mathieu Flamini’s Wikipedia After Barcelona Loss

Mathieu Flamini has been copping much of the heat since Arsenal’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to Barcelona on Tuesday night.

The Gunners midfielder was an 82nd-minute substitute in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at the Emirates.

You’d think that he was brought on to help bring more solidity to the home midfield as Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar grew increasingly influential as the game went on.

But Flamini ended up becoming one of the villains of the night as he gave away a penalty just a minute after climbing off the bench.

Messi – who had already given his side the lead – won and scored that penalty to give Barca a big 2-0 advantage on the night and ensure Arsenal need a miracle to advance to the quarter-finals.

Flamini has been taking stick online, and, unfortunately for him, his Wikipedia page was temporarily changed by an angry supporter too:

To say Arsenal’s chances of qualifying for the last eight are “completely f***ed up” is actually spot on.

Barca looked rampant at stages throughout the second half on Tuesday night and will be confident of scoring more goals when the teams meet in Spain in two weeks.

As for Flamini – despite the largely consistent performances he’s produced throughout his time as an Arsenal player – he’ll have to make it up to the Gunners faithful frustrated at how the game played out.
