Arsenal fans have vented their fury over the club's decision to extend David Luiz's contract at Emirates Stadium.
Luiz completed an £8 million move to Arsenal from Chelsea last summer, and has since made 33 appearances across all competitions for the club, scoring twice.
The Brazilian has been a regular in the Gunners' starting line-up although has been guilty of making various high-profile errors that have cost the north Londoners.
Mikel Arteta's men suffered a 3-0 defeat away at Manchester City, with Luiz gifting the home side the lead after comingon for the injured Pablo Mari midway through the first half.
His failure to deal with a Kevin DeBruyne through ball allowed Raheem Sterling to steal in and open the scoring, and his night got even worse five minutes after the interval.
Luiz was dismissed for bringing down Riyad Mahrez as he raced through on goal, and De Bruyne doubled City's lead from the resulting penalty.
Despite his erratic style of play and unpopularity among some supporters, the Gunners officially tied Luiz down to a fresh one-year deal on Wednesday,while also announcing permanent contracts forCedric Soares and Mari.
And many Arsenal fans have reacted angrily to the news on social media, with one disgruntled follower of the club's Twitter account writing "WHAT A JOKE".
The former Chelsea star will be available for selection againthree days later when the Gunners face Sheffield United, but there is likely to be plenty more opposition to his continued presence in the squad between now and then.
