The best Twitter reaction as Arsenal goalkeeper Szczesny is caught smoking in the shower

As we all know by now, Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has been fined by the club after he was caught smoking in the shower.

The Gunners slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Southampton on New Year's Day after goals from Sadio Mane and Dusan Tadic but it was the goalkeeper's woeful display that was the talking point.

Both of the Saints' goals were down to errors by Szczesny and after the second, he was seen to quickly grab his water bottle in what must have been an attempt to de-stress.

Queue the jokes - "He'll need something stronger than that!" etc etc.

But as it turned out, this wasn't too far from the truth after the Pole was caught 'lighting up' in the shower after the game.

Arsenal have a bit of a history when it comes to 'smoking players'...

Former captain William Gallas was once snapped smoking outside a London nightclub.

While Nicklas Bendtner once tweeted this after posing for a picture with 'Snoop Dog'. 

And finally, World Cup winner Mesut Ozil was once pictured enjoying a puff while on holiday in Ibiza.

Manager Arsene Wenger will be hoping his players start behaving themsleves. After-all, you wouldn't catch le professeur doing anything of the sort. Or would you?
