“Our Rivals Are Now Brighton" - Arsenal Fan's Depressing Answer To Cristiano Ronaldo Question Goes Viral

An Arsenal fan has gone viral for his depressing answer to if Manchester United are their big rivals following Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival.

United announced they'd reached an agreement with Juventus on Friday evening to bring club legend Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.


Last time he played for the Red Devils, United's big rivals in the league included an Arsenal side managed by Arsene Wenger.


Thinks are different 12 years on however and one supporter was reminded of this live on air.

He was approached by a journalist and asked: "Are you a Cristiano Ronaldo fan?"

The fan then replied: "Actually I'm an Arsenal fan."


Harmless enough so far. The reporter then asked how it'll be to see Ronaldo play for one of his side's rivals.

With a look of disappointment etched on his face, he replied: "Not really rivals. Our rivals are now Brighton.

"We will be in the same league though."

The biggest reality check you'll ever see. Even the crowd were stunned into silence.




This interview took place before Saturday's humiliating 5-0 defeat to Manchester City.

You have to imagine the unnamed Gunners man is feeling even more vindicated in his opinion.

Goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus and Rodri as well as a Ferran Torres brace secured victory for Pep Guardiola's side.

Granit Xhaka was sent off in the first half after a horrific challenge on Joao Cancelo.

Arsenal are now bottom of the Premier League and have lost their first three games.

Pressure continues to mount on Mikel Arteta, who has added Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Martin Odegaard to his squad this summer.
