  • Bayer Leverkusen star Jeremie Frimpong made fun of Arsenal
  • The defender made the joke while celebrating the Bundesliga win
  • Frimpong was with former Gunners midfielder, Granit Xhaka

Jeremie Frimpong piled more misery onto Arsenal's woes after helping Bayer Leverkusen clinch their maiden Bundesliga crown in the club's 120-year history.

The marauding wing-back played an integral role in Leverkusen's historic run to the German championship, occasioned by a 5-0 pummelling of Werder Bremen to climax what has been an excellent campaign.

Bulinews reports that single strikes from Victor Boniface and ex-Arsenal star Granit Xhaka, as well as a hat-trick from wonderkid Florian Wirtz, sent the crowd at the Bay Arena into a frenzy.

Their success invariably means Bayern Munich's stranglehold of the German top-flight came to a crashing halt, ending the Bavarians' 11-year run as Bundesliga champions.

Frimpong trolls Arsenal after Bundesliga win

While celebrating, Frimpong trolled Premier League side Arsenal. The Dutchman pointed out that Xhaka had managed to secure a league triumph after leaving the Gunners.

The 23-year-old went live on Instagram to give his followers an inside experience of how the newly-crowned German champions celebrated their triumph in the dressing room.

With his arm across Xhaka's shoulders, Jeremie aimed a sly dig at his teammate's former club: "We won it, done it! You came from Arsenal. You won it here," he said as quoted by GOAL.

Arsenal suffer major title blow

Conversely, while the Red and Blacks celebrated their momentous feat, Granit's former employers, suffered a major setback to their Premier League ambitions.

The North London club were stunned at home by Aston Villa, as they currently trail Manchester City by two points with six games to spare.

It appears to be deja vu for Mikel Arteta's men, who came within a whisker of winning the EPL last season during Xhaka's final campaign.

It looks set in stone that they might experience the same scenario this term.

Alonso claims Leverkusen want further success

Sports Brief previously reported that Bayer Leverkusen coach Xabi Alonso emphasised that despite securing their first-ever Bundesliga title with an impressive 5-0 win over Werder Bremen, their journey is far from over.

With aspirations for a treble this season, Leverkusen, led by Florian Wirtz's second-half hat-trick, remains focused.

Additionally, Leverkusen's advancement to the German Cup final and their 2-0 lead in the Europa League quarter-final against West Ham underscore their determination for further success.
