Pochettino tells Arsenal to save social media celebrations for trophy wins

Mauricio Pochettino says Arsenal should save celebratory social media posts for after trophy-winning triumphs rather than mid-season derby win.

The Gunners emerged victorious from the most recent north London derby with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang scoring twice while Lucas Torreira and Alexandre Lacazette added a goal apiece.

After the match, Aubameyang shared a video of the dressing room celebrations while Sead Kolasinac referred to the Gunners as the “Kings of North London” in a tweet.

“Personally, I don’t like it,” Pochettino said when asked about the dressing room posts.

“Obviously if you win a trophy like I won when I was a player, it’s a moment to celebrate. For me — this is my mentality and I don’t want to say it’s right or wrong — I love to celebrate in private and not make it public. I love to celebrate the things with your team-mates.

“If you win, of course, celebrate and show the fans you’re happy — it’s fantastic — but when you win a trophy when you win something special.

“In the end, Arsenal and Tottenham, we are on 30 points each. We’re in a similar position, still with a lot of things to play for. But to be sporting enemies is a fantastic thing and I don’t want to criticize what people want to do.”
