Eddie Nketiah earns appreciation from Jude Bellingham
Nketiah really stepped up in Gabriel Jesus’ absence and celebrated on social media.
The Arsenal striker not only celebrated his hat-trick, but he also dedicated it to his auntie, who died lately.
Several players, notably Jude Bellingham, sent Nketiah messages.
On Saturday, the Real Madrid player made headlines by scoring twice against Barcelona, including an injury-time victory.
Despite having just been in the England setup with Nketiah, Bellingham took time to commend him.
Bellingham said,’service must’ve been strong,’ with a fire emoji, referring to Nketiah’s regular phone celebration.
Arsenal fans were thrilled to see Bellingham show his support for Nketiah – and he wasn’t alone…
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also expresses his admiration for Nketiah.
Arsenal teammates Declan Rice, Aaron Ramsdale, Martin Odegaard, Leandro Trossard, David Raya, and Jurrien Timber all tweeted their congratulations to Nketiah.
Former Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was notoriously fired by Mikel Arteta in 2022, also left a message.
Aubameyang, on the other hand, still has feelings for Nketiah and yelled ‘Eddie Eddie Eddie’ in joy of his hat-trick.
Newcastle United midfielder Joe Willock added that Nketiah’s hat-trick was the ‘first of many’ in the Premier League, something Arsenal would be hoping for.
