Arsenal fans unsure about new signing’s “X-rated” goal celebration

If you thought it, you're not alone

Sead Kolasinac wasted no time in endearing himself to his new club’s supporters.

Arsenal’s summer signing came off the bench after half an hour, replacing the bloodied Per Mertesacker, and put on a solid performance against the reigning Premier League champions on Sunday afternoon.

After Victor Moses’ opener immediately after half-time, Chelsea led in the Community Shield until the 82nd minute, which is when Pedro was shown a red card for a late and dangerous tackle on Mohamed Elneny.

The momentum shifted instantaneously and Arsenal drew level literally five seconds after Pedro stepped off the Wembley surface.

Kolasinac popped up in the box and headed home a great delivery from Granit Xhaka to force penalties, a position from where the Gunners went on to win.

In the studio, Kolasinac’s impact was praised by the likes of BT Sport pundits Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard but, on social media, fans only wanted to talk about one thing.

And that was the celebration of choice from the Bosnian international.

We think it looks like Kolasinac enjoys a spot of skiing… What do you think?
