Arsenal fan takes one last priceless dig at Alexander Hleb from beyond the grave

Absolute classic...


We wouldn’t blame you if you’d forgotten all about former Arsenal midfielder Alexander Hleb.

He’s one of the more forgettable players to have pulled on the Gunners’ shirt over the years – along with Denilson, the Hoyte brothers and Stefan Malz (we’ve not made that last one up, he’s a real player).

Manchester United v Arsenal - Premier League

Hleb was the epitome of “an okay player” but the Belarusian made enough of an impact during his three years with the Gunners to warrant a £12m move to Barcelona.

He was clearly rated by Pep Guardiola at least – but one man who didn’t rate the midfielder is Arsenal fan Geof Cohen, who remains unimpressed by the midfielder even in the afterlife.


This incredible memorial was set up outside the Emirates by Geof’s son Howard after his father passed away.

The determination shown to take the p*ss out of an almost forgotten player, even in death, is pretty damn hilarious.
