Arsenal fan’s call into BBC 606 goes viral after he makes incredible Van Dijk and Reds claims

Posted by

BBC Radio 5Live’s 606 show has found some incredible callers over the years, but this one has got to be right up there.

Speaking after the Gunners had come from 2-0 down at the Emirates to draw with Tottenham in the North London derby, one Arsenal fan got a little carried away to say the very least.

Not only did he claim that his club would win the Premier League title this season, he claimed that Arsenal have a better squad than the Reds and Manchester City, and that player for player, the Gunners are ‘superior’.

Even when offered the chance to revise his claims and make himself look a little less deluded, the caller would not back down.

Among his incredible suggestions were that David Luiz is better than Virgil van Dijk, Hector Bellerin is better than Trent Alexander-Arnold, and that Mesut Ozil is better than Kevin de Bruyne.

The real truth behind Salah-Mane ‘bust-up’ doesn’t match the media narrative – or anyone’s preconceptions

Come back at the end of the season, the caller says, and we’ll see who is laughing. We certainly will – and it won’t be him!
