VIDEO: Arsenal’s Dani Ceballos complains to Henrikh Mkhitaryan about Burnley playing long balls

Slams tactics with derogatory hand motion.


Arsenal midfielder Dani Ceballos complained to Henrikh Mkhitaryan about Burnley’s long balls while sitting in the Emirates dugout during Saturday’s game.

The 23-year-old Spanish midfielder, on loan from Real Madrid, enjoyed a productive full debut as he assisted both goals in a 2-1 win for Unai Emery’s Gunners.

After Lucas Torreira replaced him in the 83rd minute, Ceballos sat down alongside Mkhitaryan and appeared to criticise the Clarets’ tactics.

He uttered a few choice words, eliciting a knowing grin from his team-mate, and motioned long passes with his hand.

Having opened the season with back-to-back wins, Arsenal’s next fixture is away to a Liverpool side that’s the only Premier League team to have done likewise.
