Jorginho mocked over Bukayo Saka Instagram post after error in North London derby vs Tottenham
| Last updated
Arsenal midfielder Jorginho has been mocked over his Bukayo Saka Instagram post before the North London derby against Spurs.
The two sides played an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Emirates, with Heung-Min Son coming up with two equalisers for the visitors.
Saka's strike was deflected off Cristian Romero for the opener and the Argentina centre-back was penalised for a handball which resulted in the penalty scored by the England international to put Arsenal back in the lead.
Yet just moments later and it was Jorginho's costly error which allowed Spurs to pull level for the second time. The former Chelsea midfielder was brought on at half-time after Declan Rice was struggling with a back issue.
But one of his first contributions was being robbed of possession by James Maddison, who assisted Son for the second time.
Unfortunately for the Italy international, he had almost tempted fate with a pre-match comment on his Instagram story.
Posting a picture of him leaving Saka on the turf, Jorginho wrote: "Don't come to press me papai" with a slew of laugh emojis.
Jorginho almost tempted fate, however, as he was then pressed successfully by Maddison after hesitating on the ball.
Predictably, that led to plenty of reaction online about Jorginho's poor choice of words.
One wrote: "He just posted a hint to Spurs before game."
A second commented: "This did not age well bro."
A third added: "Ironic he posts this, then gets pressed, loses the ball, and Spurs score."
A fourth stated: "The script was there to be seen right in front of our eyes…"
A fifth weighed in: "Posting this just to lose the ball and concede."
A sixth user said: "Guess what happened when papai was actually pressed in a moment that matters..."
