Leicester City’s Robert Huth has admitted that Arsenal’s win at the Emirates in February and subsequent selfie-taking inspired the Foxes to push on and win the Premier League.
The former Stoke defender hailed it as a key moment for the Champions as it got their blood boiling so much that they had to respond. They even, apparently, stuck copies of the selfies up around their ground.
Well, it obviously did the trick because they won the League with games to spare.
“For me the key point was when we lost to Arsenal,” Huth said.
“Everyone was celebrating, they were doing selfies. Even though we were still top.
“A few of the lads stuck a few those pictures up and it got the blood boiling. It gave us an extra yard in the next few games.”
Arsenal aren’t the only team to take post-win selfies in the dressing room but we do appear to come under fire for it an awful lot. In this case, it’s apparently helped a rival win the League, which isn’t good.
However, the picture-taking doesn’t bother me. In fact, when we’re celebrating after a win and we see the boys are too, it gives me a warm feeling of solidarity. I imagine it does something similar for them.
