Ex-Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen tweets after winning La Liga with Barcelona

Thomas Vermaelen Pre FA Cup Press Conference

Former Arsenal star hopes to be involved in future title successes.

Former Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has reacted on Twitter to his Barcelona side winning the La Liga title.

Barcelona clinched the title at the weekend after beating last year's champions Atletico Madrid 1-0, sealing an insurmountable four point lead with only one game remaining.

Vermaelen didn't win a league title with Arsenal while in the Premier League, and can claim to be a La Liga winner this season, despite not having played a single game.

He has been sidelined all season through injury, with his signing appearing misjudged by Barcelona, but he has made the substitute's bench in recent weeks.

Vermaelen took to Twitter yesterday, and did not try to take any credit for the club's win, sensibly congratulating his teammates and speaking of his determination to play a part in future successes.

The Belgian did not partake in any David May-esque celebrations either, standing at the back as the team celebrated the trophy, joining in but not attempting to take any limelight.

With the league already won, and players needing to be rested ahead of the upcoming Champions League Final against Juventus, there is a chance Vermaelen still gets to play this season.

Whether as a starter or substitute, his belated debut could take place on Sunday when the Blaugruna host Deportivo la Coruna.
