White was praised by Arsenal’s media team over a passage of play in which he gave the ball awayGetty
The short clip showed White giving away the ball in Sunday’s clash before tracking back and winning an interception seconds later.
A confused Austin pointed out that White had lost possession and joked that his actions were not deserving of praise.
He reacted to the video saying: “Yep well done he ran back and intercepted a pass from the ball he just gave away ”
His comment received backlash from Arsenal fans with many criticising his work rate.
One fan said: “Can’t imagine you tracking back like that.”
Another added: “This is embarrassing. You’re hardly smashing it at Swindon fella, so I’d leave the critiques alone for a while.”
A third wrote: “Imagine if you would have to run back everytime you gave the ball away you would be doing the bleep test ”
And another commented: “You couldn’t run the length of the pitch ”
Sunday league side East Malling FC had a back and forth with the striker on Twitter and ended the interaction by saying: “Wouldn’t even have you on a dual register fella ”
That led a fan to say: “Been bodied bro.”
