West Ham United fans on Twitter can’t get over what attacker Michail Antonio did on Saturday during the 2-2 Premier League draw with Leicester City’s at London Stadium.
Having put Manuel Pellegrini’s men a goal to the good on 37 minutes, the former England international ran straight for the Irons’ new pitch-surrounding claret carpet at their Stratford home.
When he got there, Antonio dropped to the ground before gently and comically stroking it, showing his appreciation for the surface which was finally installed last week after years of pressure from supporters.
Members of the Claret & Blue Army absolutely loved the ironic display from the 29-year-old, who is known for his funny antics on and off the pitch and renowned goal celebrations.
The celebration is all they could talk about in the replies of the Tweet informing them that Antonio had fired West Ham ahead after converting a Mark Noble cross.
