The Tottenham boss says the Gunners should hold off on taking to Twitter and Instagram in celebration until they have won a trophy.

Mauricio Pochettino says Arsenal should save celebratory social media posts for after trophy-winning triumphs rather than mid-season derby wins.

The Gunners emerged victorious from the most recent north London derby with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang scoring twice while Lucas Torreira and Alexandre Lacazette added a goal apiece.

After the match, Aubameyang shared a video of the dressing room celebrations while Sead Kolasinac referred to the Gunners as the “Kings of North London” in a tweet.

Speaking in an interview, when asked about some of Arsenal’s dressing room posts, Pochettino said, “Personally, I don’t like it”.

“Obviously if you win a trophy, like I won when I was a player, it’s a moment to celebrate. For me, this is my mentality and I don’t want to say it’s right or wrong. I love to celebrate in private and not make it public. I love to celebrate the things with your team-mates.

“If you win, of course celebrate and show the fans you’re happy, it’s fantastic but when you win a trophy, when you win something special.”

He also reiterated that at the end of it all, Arsenal and Tottenham are on 30 points each and they are in similar positions with a lot of things to play for.


Although Pochettino did not necessarily approve of the social media activity, he did take some pride in it.

The Argentine says that the posts show the status of Tottenham, as teams are feeling pride from taking down Pochettino’s side.

“It’s clear we’re doing something good. I love it when the people celebrate when they beat you. I don’t like it when the people don’t celebrate because it’s normal to beat Tottenham”, Pochettino said.

Tottenham currently sit fifth on the Premier League table ahead of Wednesday’s home clash against The Saints at Wembley.
