Fans convinced they spotted Arsenal new boy David ‘Sideshow Bob’ Luiz’s removal van after deadline day transfer from Chelsea… but can you spot why?


FANS claimed to have seen David Luiz’s removal fan following his switch to Arsenal – because of his resemblance to “Sideshow Bob”.

The Brazilian defender, 32, has been likened to the infamous Simpsons character because of his curly brown locks.

Luiz completed a shock £8million transfer to Unai Emery’s side from Chelsea on transfer deadline day.

And fans have joked that he is already moving his belongings across the capital after an image of a lorry was posted to Twitter.

The picture showed an Eddie Stobart vehicle, but as half of the company name was missing it read: “Die Bart”.

This is the popular catchphrase of Luiz’s lookalike, Sideshow Bob, because of his bitter feud with Bart Simpson.

After the image was posted to Reddit, one amused fan said: “Not going to lie, this took me longer than I care to admit but I’m choking on my coffee right now.”

Another simply added: “This is absolutely brilliant.”

Luiz has been likened to the animated character throughout his career – and it landed him in a spot of bother during a match in 2013.

He was slated after he was seen smirking uncontrollably when Rafael da Silva was sent off for fouling him.

But the defender claimed that he was laughing at a Manchester United fan who called him “Sideshow Bob” from the stands.
