Some Arsenal supporters have wasted little time in hitting back at Lord Sugar on social media.
The former Tottenham Hotspur chairman claimed on social media that there were no Arsenal shirts on sale in a shop he visited in Australia while the strip of the club he previously owned was plain in sight.

The 73-year-old is currently in Australia to film Channel Nine’s Celebrity Apprentice Australia television series (Queensland Times).
Sugar’s photo gave Arsenal supporters the opportunity to hit back at his mockery after the picture appeared to be taken at a Nike store in Sydney, where other shirts made by the US sportswear giant could be seen including that of PSG.
The fact that Arsenal’s kit is manufactured by Adidas is reason alone as to why the retailer would not stock Tottenham’s Premier League rivals merchandise on their shelves.
Sugar is known for his track record of attempting to rile Arsenal-supporting Piers Morgan on Twitter (talkSPORT).
This guy is in the Nike store looking for an arsenal shirt. Money doesn't buy you brains.

Maybe because you’re at a Nike store. Also or maybe because everybody buys Arsenal shirts and nobody buys Spurs shirt. ?

AFC is Adidas. He is in a Nike store. Also he is a Spurs fan. Can't expect intelligence.

Not the sharpest tool in the box are we Alan? Adidas replica shirts in a Nike shop!!
Nice to know that we are still under your skin – can’t quite shake off the inferiority complex. Always being compared, wishing, wondering if only, and naturally trophyless
