KIERAN TIERNEY was labelled a 'future captain' by Arsenal fans for his x-rated rant at team-mates.
The Gunners defender's pep talk during the north London derby was noticed by supporters online.
And it clearly worked a treat, too, as Arsenal came from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1 on Sunday.
Tierney, 23, was captured by TV cameras shouting: "Boys, we need to f***ing score, how many chances?"
And social media users dived in to call him a 'future captain' and 'my captain to be'.
The full four-minute clip of Tierney mic'd up was released on Arsenal's Instagram page.
The Scottish left-back was seen – and heard- barking orders at team-mates and helping them overcome a 1-0 deficit.
Former Celtic full-back Tierney has become a cult hero at Arsenal since joining in 2019.
He was pictured walking through Rome's Stadio Olimpico last month in just a t-shirt while his team-mates wrapped up in winter gear.
Despite the chilly conditions, he refused to break the habit of a lifetime by wearing a warm jacket.

The 23-year-old looked dressed for a summer's evening as he strolled around in a polo shirt.
Meanwhile, Hector Bellerin was spotted wearing a puffer jacket and a woolly hat before the game.
Arsenal shared the two snaps of Bellerin and Tierney with their Twitter followers.
One fan responded: "Does Tierney not own a coat or what? This guy dresses like it's 75 degrees everyday."
Another asked: "Does Tierney ever feel cold?"
Tierney proved he was superhuman as he trained in the SNOW in shorts and a t-shirt.
He even rocked the same polo shirt when he turned up for the freezing clash against Dundalk.
And fans could not believe their eyes when he arrived to a game with his gear in a Tesco carrier bag.
