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 coming on for the injured Pablo Mari midway through the first half.
His failure to deal with a Kevin De Bruyne 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 for Cedric 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".
Arteta's side lost 2-1 to Brighton in Luiz's absence on Saturday, and will also be without the enigmatic centre-back when they travel to St Mary's to take on Southampton on Thursday.
The former Chelsea star will be available for selection again three 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.

Everything about Arsenal currently is depressing. How do you award a 29 year old Southampton flop a 4 year contract and then call it rebuilding? David Luiz gives a 0/10 performance and his reward is a contract extension? Goodness me.— WelBeast (@WelBeast) June 24, 2020

These deals are terrible. A great lesson as to how to use limited funds in an inefficient manner. pic.twitter.com/iBzUjmCeae— Pain In The Arsenal (at 🏡) (@PainInThArsenal) June 24, 2020
