‘What are you smoking?!’ – Father of USMNT star Weston McKennie responds to Arsenal transfer tweet
- Fan said McKennie not good enough for Arsenal
- Dad rushes to player’s defense
- Midfielder also linked with Leeds
WHAT HAPPENED? Below a graphic that suggested McKennie could be heading to Arsenal, the fan wrote: “McKennie is nowhere close to being technically good enough for Arteta’s side. He doesn’t have the creative passing IQ, or the positional IQ. I think [Yunus] Musah is a better American to sign if they want depth for [Granit] Xhaka’s position.”
John McKennie replied: “What are you smoking so I can get some!”
THE BIGGER PICTURE: McKennie is reportedly on the radar of Leeds, who have American players Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams, plus head coach Jesse Marsch, in their ranks.
