“Making Kepa look good” These fans mock Runar Runarsson after his Man City horror show

Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson was signed to replace Emiliano Martinez in the Arsenal team this summer, that decision came back to haunt the club last night.

The Iceland international was given the chance to play against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup quarterfinal and he put in a terrible display.

He made two errors leading to a goal, one of which was a very soft free-kick by Riyad Mahrez that he unbelievably dropped.

It was an awful game for the Gunners, but the last line of defence should usually be trusted to help a poor team, Runarsson wasn’t in the mood to do that.

Squawka posted that the former Dijon man was the third Arsenal goalkeeper to have made two errors leading to goals in a game, in the last three years.

He joins Petr Cech, and Bernd Leno on that list. The Twitter post attracted some mockers who took their time to laugh at the Gunners in the comment section, here are some of the reactions.

    It’s too early for him to play in official games. Arsenal should’ve kept Iliev after Macey informed his departure plan and after they decided to sell Martinez

    Two errors? What two errors are you talking about dear Martin?

    Feel bad for the guy. I can understand why he chose to delete his Twitter account. The downside of social media. The entire team is underperforming so is expected.

    Have to ask questions about recruitment again. Why did we buy him? Took up a non-homegrown spot, and isn’t anything special. Apparently on 40k a week. For what exactly? We have academy players who can do what he does.

      40 grand a week!.

    I am truly sorry for Runnarson and the brainless idiots who slag him off from the comfort of their arm chairs are an embarrassment to our Club.Their anger and frustration should be directed towards the incompetent person who is currently in charge of our appalling recruitment team.

    1. Val says:

      Grandad, based on what i’ve seen of this 25 year old goalkeeper, he’s nowhere near the level required to be a No 2 for a premier league side, let alone Arsenal.

      The fact is he should never had been bought and thats not the kids fault is those in recruitment.

  6. Defund The Media says:

    What a terrible comparison, kepa cost what 70 odd times more and has consistently bad since his purchase.
