Dillian Whyte says the Tyson Fury knockout was an “illegal” push and requires rematch

The English national team player marked his return to the Gunners with two strikes at St Mary’s Stadium on his way to an emphatic 5-0 victory, and enjoyed the moment by celebrating it in style.

For those less in touch with viral internet memes, Welbeck’s rather unusual celebration was with reference to an Instagram video that this man had posted:

Somehow he managed to make minced meat look sexy and stylish, and Turkish chef Nusret Gokce put the finishing touches on this dish by flamboyantly sprinkling a pinch of salt over it with the hash tag #saltbae.

Welbeck is clearly a fan, and he’s not the first footballer to emulate a pinch of salt maneuver in a goal celebration since the video went viral last week.

So there you have it, in short: a man on the internet did something with some meat, and a football player imitated it after scoring a goal.

What times do we live in.
