Son of Arsenal director Edu abused over Pablo Mari transfer stall

The son of Arsenal technical director Edu is coming in for abuse from Arsenal supporters.

The Gunners are hoping to complete a signing in the January transfer window and they have been linked with Spanish centre-back Pablo Mari.

But the deal with Brazilian club Flamengo has hit a few snags, which has lead to frustration among supporters.

Edu's son, Luigi Gaspar, has a Twitter profile that has received some unsavoury comments from Gunners fans.

They include comments such as "your father is a fraud" and "your dad is s**** mate" and "f*** your father Edu."

It is unclear how Edu feels about his son being targeted by a small albeit vocal minority of fans.
