Arsenal club shop sell out of £25 t-shirts of Mikel Arteta’s bizarre ‘brain and heart’ team talk seen on Amazon’s All or Nothing series… despite fans claiming ‘surely nobody over the age of 5 wears that’
- Arsenal sell out of t-shirt referencing Mikel Arteta’s brain and heart teamtalk
- The club were out of stock of the shirt in 30 minutes due to fan’s high demand
- The boss’s teamtalk was seen on Arsenal’s All or Nothing documentary series
- However, not all supporters are fans of the t-shirt and have reacted on Twitter
Arsenal’s club shop has sold out of t-shirts with artwork referencing manager Mikel Arteta’s iconic teamtalk as seen on Amazon’s All or Nothing series about the club after only 30 minutes.
During the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur in episode two of the behind-the-scenes documentary, Arteta was focusing on how to get the best out of his side in order to overcome their fierce rivals.
The Spaniard took to the whiteboard and drew a cartoon heart and brain and told the players to work together on the pitch.
The t-shirt’s design is base on Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s pre match teamtalk vs Spurs
Arteta suggested that he wanted his players to play with ‘big hearts’ and a ‘big brain’
While creating his artwork, he said: ‘Guys, we have to play with our big hearts. At the same time, we have to play with a big brain.
‘And these have to work together.
‘This is your passion, how your manager wants you to put into the game. How much you want to commit yourself in the game.’
After the teamtalk, Arsenal would beat Spurs 3-1 with Emilie Smith-Rowe (pictured) scoring
During the speech, many of the Arsenal stars such as Bukayo Saka, Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Martin Odegaard, Sami Lokonga and Emile Smith Rowe were left with confused looks on their faces.
However, the speech worked as they went on to win the game 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
This success has led to Arsenal to commemorate the result by making a t-shirt with the picture by Arteta on it.
Arsenal’s technical director Edu Gasper bought one of the t-shirts before they sold out
The t-shirt sold out at the Arsenal club shop within 30 minutes of its release to the public
The shirt is being featured on the club’s website for £25, and it appears to have been a great decision as it has sold out with no stock available to be bought.
Arsenal technical director Edu Gaspar was one person that managed to get a hold of one before it sold out as he posted a picture of his new garment on Instagram.
He said on the post: ‘My new T-shirt!!!. #Passion!!!.’
Some Arsenal fans were not keen on the new t-shirt featuring Arteta’s teamtalk picture
However, not everyone is as big a fan of the t-shirt as the former midfielder as fans have taken to Twitter to criticise the clothing item.
One tweeted: ‘Surely nobody over the age of 5 wears that?’
Another tweeted: ‘Grown man wearing this would need a slap’.
One fan wants to see Arteta ‘rocking’ the t-shirt during his media appearances
However, one fan, was a fan of the shirt and expressed his interest in seeing Arteta wear the T-shirt for his next media appearance.
@RemontadaVv Tweeted: ‘In fairness fair play. Would love to see Mikel rocking one of these in the post-match interview.’
The 65 per cent of the money raised from the sale of the shirt is being donated to The Arsenal Foundation.
