Rob Holding went viral on social media after he was hilariously caught complaining to the referee about how easily Adama Traore went to ground in Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat by Wolves.
As the Gunners trailed on Sunday with five minutes to play, Holding furiously reacted to Traore winning a foul, with his expletive-laden complaint ringing round the empty Emirates for all to hear.
Holding was furious at Traore for going down too easily
In the clip, Holding could be heard saying: “He’s built like a brick s***house, how can he go down like that? F*** me.”
The Englishman proceeded to throw the ball in the direction of Traore, earning himself a caution for his complaints from referee Michael Oliver.
His reaction summed up what was another dire night for the Gunners, who now sit in 14th with 13 points from ten matches this season.

Podence’s wonderful finish condemned Arsenal to a third successive home Premier League defeatGetty Images
The 2-1 victory at the Emirates was the first time Wolves had won against the Gunners away from home in 41 years – but the game was overshadowed by an early scare for Raul Jimenez.
The Mexico forward was involved in a sickening clash of heads with David Luiz and was taken to hospital having received ten minutes of treatment on the pitch.
While his teammates were clearly shaken by the events, they rallied to win as Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence struck either side of a Gabriel Magalhaes header to earn the visitors a deserved victory.
