Apostle Suleman Reacts As Southampton Dumps Arsenal Out Of FA Cup

The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), Apostle Johnson Suleman, has reacted to Arsenal’s FA Cup loss to Southampton on Saturday.

Suleman, a known Arsenal fan blamed Coach Mikel Arteta for the loss, describing him as a man ready to sink.

It will be recalled as earlier reported by Naija News that holders Arsenal were sent crashing out of the FA Cup as Gabriel Magalhaes’s own goal gave Southampton a deserved win in their fourth-round tie on the south coast.

Mikel Arteta made seven changes to his side and was without captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for personal reasons as the Gunners were outplayed, losing their grip on the trophy following a 1-0 defeat at St Mary’s.

Southampton should have won by a bigger margin but now face a trip to Wolves in round five as Gabriel’s poor return to the Arsenal side was capped by accidentally deciding the tie in favour of the hosts with an own goal.

Saints started lively and were unsettling the recalled Gabriel in the opening minute. Danny Ings was then picked out free inside the box and his effort was deflected behind, with James Ward-Prowse hitting the crossbar direct from a corner as he looked to catch Bernd Leno off his line.

Reacting to the loss, Apostle Suleman lamented, wondering what he is still doing with the North London club.

He wrote: “Since Arterta has made up his mind to sink, good luck…there is more to life than exiting an FA cup…I really don’t know what I am doing with Arsenal where one keeps walking on eggshells for over 25yrs. God bless, goodnight.”

Meanwhile, United States talk show legend and former CNN anchor, Larry King, has died at the age of 87.

Recall that Larry King had in late December 2020, tested positive for the dreaded coronavirus (COVID-19) and was hospitalized.

The 87-year-old was hospitalized at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, US.

But in a statement on Twitter on Saturday, the death of the legendary presenter was announced.
