Arsenal are reportedly ‘planning something special’ for the young fan who was captured on Sky Sports crying his heart out as he watched his team humiliate themselves at Wembley in the League Cup final.

The fan, who was subjected to some Daily Mail treatment the day after the final, has already received messages from a few Arsenal players on social media, although they’ve been sent out into the ether rather than to the child directly.

It is not clear what Arsenal are planning to do and the Mail report that the club are likely to keep it private, or at least try to.

They reportedly could invite the fan and his parents to the Emirates for a day out.

Hopefully, if they do invite him, it isn’t for the game against City on Thursday because that seems more like a punishment for the kid than a reward.

Besides, it would also be well past his bedtime.
