Iwobi appeared to kick out at Traore before the two exchanged words from close range in injury time.

The Gunners star then took a few steps backwards and held his nose – appearing to tell the Rennes player his breath smelt.

Some Twitter users found Iwobi’s gag hilarious. But many others criticised the Arsenal midfielder, calling him “unprofessional” and “classless”.
