Kevin Wimmer’s Wikipedia page was brilliantly edited after own goal v Arsenal

Kevin Wimmer won’t get much sleep tonight, you’d imagine, after scoring an own goal for Tottenham in the north London derby against Arsenal this afternoon.

The Austrian defender put Mesut Ozil’s free-kick into the back of his own net with a bullet header past Hugo Lloris towards the end of the first half.

Fortunately for Wimmer, he was bailed out by Harry Kane, who sealed a precious point for Mauricio Pochettino’s side with a second-half penalty after Moussa Dembele was brought down inside the penalty area by Laurent Koscielny.

But that didn’t prevent Wimmer taking a hammering on social media.

And people - Arsenal fans, no doubt - clearly found the situation so amusing they decided to embarrass the defender even further by cruelly editing his Wikipedia page.

Wimmer’s Wikipedia page edited

The first edit shows that Wimmer’s current club was changed from ‘Tottenham’ to ‘Arsenal’.


And the second edit was even harsher. “Rumour has its that Wimmer is a closet Arsenal fan and seeks to contribute extensively in the second period of play.”

It wasn’t long before Wimmer’s Wikipedia page returned to normal, but not before a host of eagle-eyed Twitter users took screenshots.

Fair result?

Today’s result means Arsenal miss out on the opportunity to get above Manchester City into joint-first place alongside Chelsea, who hammered Everton on Saturday evening.

Tottenham, meanwhile, stay in fifth place.

Was today’s 1-1 draw between Arsenal and Spurs a fair result? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
