Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand and Richard Dunne have criticised Arsenal players after they posted victory pictures on social media following their 6-0 thumping of Ludogorets.

The image sparked a large discussion from fans and pundits alike about whether the players should be sharing such things so early on in the season when the team are yet to win any trophies.
“It’s great when you win in something but not a group stage in a competition… Arsenal have always been undone by not winning trophies,” former Manchester City player Dunne commented on BT Sport.
Ferdinand also expressed his opinion and agreed with his fellow pundit.
“I have said it before, I wouldn’t be doing that until I have got my hands on a trophy. If that is what the boys want to do…it’s a new age,” he said.
After their midweek victory, Arsene Wenger’s side are top of their group with two wins and a draw.
The North London side are back in Premier League action on Saturday as they host a struggling Middlesbrough side at the Emirates Stadium.
