Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes remained on the pitch at the Emirates Stadium long after celebrating with his teammates in David Luiz’s farewell to the club on Sunday.
This was after the central defender lost his tooth during the revelry and kept trying to find it.

Members of the Arsenal support staff members were also spotted trying to help Gabriel while players and managers were conducting their postmatch interviews.
It all happened when Luiz, who is set to leave Arsenal at the end of the campaign, was mobbed by his teammates and the roistering resulted in Gabriel losing a tooth. His teammates stood and laughed at the situation.

When Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was asked about the incident, he laughed and told reporters: “You guys are here and very close to him so you can help him.”
Later, Gabriel gave an update on the search and posted on his Instagram story: “Don’t worry guys, I found my tooth.”

Meanwhile, it was a disappointing campaign for Arsenal, who failed to qualify for Europe for the first time in 25 years.
