Lord Sugar proven immediately wrong after strange tweet over Arsenal’s pink kit

Lord Alan Sugar scored another spectacular social media own goal that one of his Apprentice contestants would have been proud of with a bizarre tweet about Arsenal's pink kit.

Sugar, 75, hit the headlines last month with a strange tweet about the lack of male commentators at Women's Euros 2022. And he kept up his oddball run of form by taking aim at the Gunners' third kit at Crystal Palace.

Mikel Arteta's side ditched their red home shirts and their black away shirts in favour of a pink third kit at Selhurst Park. That went down like a hot pink balloon with alfa-male Shugs, who loaded up the tweet machine to have a go at the jersey and continue his recent tete-a-tete with Ian Wright.

"Pink shirts! I wonder if @IanWright0 would have played in a pink shirt," he wrote, prompting a flurry of messages from angry Twitter users. Some labelled the Tottenham fan "insecure" and a "strange little man," while others simply chose to mock him.

One user got back to Sugar within four minutes of the original tweet, posting an image of the veteran Lord proudly wearing a pink shirt on the Apprentice. But the TV star had an answer for that too.

"Idiot a pink shirt to wear with suit is perfectly fine. But a football Jersey….come off it," he replied, sparking another wave of messages, including from one football fan who said: "Nothing wrong with the shade of gammon on a shirt."

Someone else responded with a picture of Arsenal legend Wright wearing a bright pink shirt during an appearance on ITV. Another user replied: "Takes a real man to wear pink though. But I'm sure that you haven't got a single clue about been a "real" man."

Funnily enough, the Gunners didn't let the colour of their shirts distract them on the pitch as they cruised to a comfortable 2-0 win at Selhurst Park.

Gabriel Martinelli opened the scoring midway through the first half before a deflected Bukayo Saka cross-cum-shot wrapped things up late on for Mikel Arteta's side.
