New Arsenal signing Matt Turner has already earned his stripes with the club's fans without playing a game after brutally snubbing a Spurs supporter.
Turner had his farewell for New England Revolution last night ahead of joining the Gunners on 1 July for a fee of £5.75 million.
Revolution beat Minnesota 2-1 in the MLS, with Dylan Borrero and Gustavo Bou on target.
Turner, although not selected, was given a special send-off and after the game, happily signed items for home fans in the stands.
But he emphatically refused to sign a shirt from a supporter wearing a Spurs top. At first he had the pen ready to sign and once he seen the badge, it was a big snub.
“Oh no. That’s disgusting," Turner commented.
He then moved on to signing other fans' shirts and signs. New England posted the savage clip on their social media, with the caption, "I think he’ll fit in just fine on his side of North London."
The deal for Turner, 27, was agreed in February 2022 and will see him become competition for Aaron Ramsdale in between the sticks at Arsenal, with Bernd Leno poised to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.
Turner, who only started playing football at the age of 14 to keep up his fitness for other sports he was playing, has been capped 18 times for the United States.
He kept five clean sheets in six games during the USMNT's CONCACAF World Cup win, including one in the final against Mexico.
Turner is relishing the opportunity to play for his boyhood club and has vowed to push Ramsdale all the way.
"I can see why they'd assess it that way. Aaron had an amazing season for Arsenal and played well all year," he told Sky Sports News.
"I'd agree with it for now. I'm coming in to push him and become the best goalkeeper I can become, while also making him the best goalkeeper he can become. That's really my goal for it all."
