Have a look at the best Mathieu Flamini renewable energy jokes in response to the Arsenal midfielder’s disastrous substitute appearance in last night’s 0-2 defeat to Barcelona.
Having replaced Francis Coquelin in the 82nd minute of the Champions League last 16 first leg tie, Flamini hacked down Lionel Messi to concede a penalty just 47 seconds later.
Messi duly stepped up and scored, handing the La Liga giants an unassailable-looking lead going into the second leg at the Camp Nou.
And yet, Flamini could still turn out to be a hero for all humankind – his biochemicals firm GFBiochemicals is set to enter the US market after landing a leading producer of bioplastics.
The Frenchman has been quoted as saying:
Climate change is the biggest issue of our time and now more than ever urgent action is required.
It’s a noble – not to mention lucrative – cause, but last night it only served to fuel a deluge of Mathieu Flamini renewable energy jokes:
Flamini is the billionaire co-owner of a biotech company that turns waste into energy. He's a footballer that turns energy into waste. #COYG

If Flamini were to create a completely renewable biofuel and save the world. I still wouldn't forgive him

Flamini, a man clever enough to produce a renewable replacement for oil, doesn't know that steaming into Messi in the box is a bad idea.

Flamini did us a favour man, killed the hope. Smartest man on twitter. Wants us to be realistic, renewable energy and the league.

Flamini should invest in a company to harness the energy of Arsenal Twitter annoyance at him.

Flamini's discovered the most renewable resource of all https://t.co/x3cuG61uX6

Mathieu Flamini will have the last laugh in 2038, when he's sitting in his levulinic acid-powered biodome, counting his trillions, all alone

Criticism of Flamini is little bit harsh. It is not easy to time challenges in the same year as saving the world with renewable energy.

Think it's time for Flamini to retire and concentrate on his business. #AFCvFCB

If Flamini saves the world with his new renewable energy source like he saved the CL tie, this world is doomed. https://t.co/UmWt9Vh7RB
