Singer Jermaine Jackson reacts on Twitter to Sheffield Wednesday beating Arsenal

Jermaine Jackson Wednesday

Famous singer Jermaine Jackson was delighted to see Sheffield Wednesday beat Arsenal.

Faced with an unlikely task in midweek, Sheffield Wednesday made beating Premier League side Arsenal look as easy as ABC.

Music legend Jermaine Jackson was thrilled to learn of the 3-0 win, and took to Twitter to congratulate the Owls on their achievement.

Jackson is no Arsenal hater - instead he has an unlikely affinity with Sheffield Wednesday.

The Sheffield Star reported his affection for the Owls in a celebrity fan feature earlier this month.

Back in 2011 the Jackson 5 star played down his affection for the club, insisting they were just one of two clubs he was familiar with, having gone to a game back in the 80s.

Clearly he is not a regular in the stands at Hillsborough, but his reaction to the 3-0 win over Arsenal was one of somebody pleased to see the club record a momentous victory.

It's just a little surprising he has not taken to following Fulham more closely after former owner Mohamed Al Fayed erected a statue of his brother Michael Jackson outside Craven Cottage - for reasons which never really became clear.
