Gilberto leaves fans baffled with Arsenal legends snap featuring Geoff Shreeves

Arsenal legend Gilberto Silva has left football fans baffled after uploading a snap alongside his fellow ‘Invincibles’ and Geoff Shreeves.

The legendary Arsenal and Brazil defensive-midfielder was joined by Sol Campbell, Martin Keown and Patrick Vieira, along with former manager Arsene Wenger and ex-Gunners co-owner David Dein in a photo uploaded to his Instagram. The six all played a part in the club’s famous unbeaten Premier League season in 2003/04.

Somewhat out of place and joining them was Sky Sports reporter Shreeves. And fans picked up on Shreeves’ curious involvement alongside some of Arsenal’s greatest ever players and personnel, with one writing on Twitter: “How has Shreevesy managed this?”

But Gilberto's Instagram caption explained that the link-up came by way of Dein’s new book launch at the Cambridge Theatre in London.

He wrote: “This week I had the greatest time at David Dein's book launch! It was great to be around special friends. If you want to reach your highest level, ‘Calling the Shots: How to Win in Football and in Life’ is an essential book for you!”

Fans quickly showed their adoration for those in the picture, taking to social media to write: “I miss all you guys," and “legends”.

Do you think the Arsenal Invincibles are overrated or underrated? Let us know in the comments section.

Iconic manager Wenger is now serving as FIFA's Chief of Global Football Development. But Dein recently stated publicly that Arsenal should have given the Frenchman a role at the club after his time as manager came to an end.

Dein told the Daily Mail: "He [Wenger] was a miracle worker, and they just let him go. He left in a similar way to me. I thought the club owed Arsene a duty of care, at least a discussion. We need a change but how do you want this to be done?”

"Do you want to be involved? What can we do? Would you like a different role, would you prefer to exit elegantly? You must have dialogue. It didn’t happen in my case, didn’t happen in his. And that really hurt him. I would have done it differently.”
